Offered as either 60 or 90-minute sessions to schools and departments, this series seeks to highlight local Chicana/o/x and Latina/o/x history, expose teachers to the materials gathered by the Chicano & Latino History Project, and support them in the implementation of these materials into their existing curriculum.
Ongoing Professional Development Series
Offered to districts, schools and other groups of educators, this series spans the course of an academic year and can be tailored to meet the needs of the partnering organization. This series includes everything covered in the teacher workshops and 3-part professional development series coupled with ongoing support for teachers from CLHP staff.
