Free Webinar: Reflecting on Using Primary Sources to Meet the Needs of Diverse Learners – June 3, 2-3 ET

Register now for this webinar!

U.S. inspectors examining eyes of immigrants, Ellis Island, New York Harbor. Underwood and Underwood, 1913

Explore key moments across U.S. history at which individual advocacy and broad campaigns for civil rights enabled people with disabilities to move from the far margins of society into full citizenship. Identify points in the typical U.S. History curriculum (such as Antebellum Reforms, early 20th century Immigration, and Post WWII social movements) to infuse elements of this history. Access a wealth of primary sources, free curriculum, and communities of support. Gain practical strategies and tools to make history truly accessible for all learners–especially students with disabilities.

This session will be facilitated by Rich Cairn and Alison Noyes, from Collaborative for Educational Services.

Educators participating in the live webinar for this session may request a certificate for one hour of professional development.
