K-12 Teacher Training
Published: Monday, September 24, 2012
Teacher training has long been a mainstay of the Institute’s community outreach efforts, allowing our faculty members to share their knowledge with as wide an audience as possible. Working with the Los Angeles Unified and other school districts, we organize an intensive training workshop each summer on a Latin American topic and seminars during the academic year.
Recent seminars include Representations of African descendants in Latin America; Con Mis Manos: a History of Labor in Latin America; Enduring Legacies: African Influence in the Artistic Expressions of the Americas; Race, Class, Gender, and National Policy in Latin America; and Finding Pachamama: Environmentalism in Latin America.
