Considering Ways to Teach for Freedom: An Evening for Current & Future Educators - Feb 1st!

A message from Mark Kohan (Cincinnati FreedomWriters Project and Teaching for Hope and Justice Network):

Hello CECH faculty, staff, and partners,

I'm writing to let you know that we have a special evening planned at the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center for UC students, faculty, and staff on Wednesday, February 1st.

The focus of the evening at the Freedom Center will be to explore educator resources for addressing issues related to equality, diversity, and justice in American society and schools. The evening will provide an opportunity for UC education students, faculty, ans staff to get to know one another better (as well as one of Cincinnati's most celebrated cultural centers) as they engage in issues that affect the profession of teaching and the process of schooling in the United States.

If applicable to courses you are teaching or listservs you are overseeing, please forward the following link and attachment so that our UC community can RSVP if they plan on attending the event:

Free transportation for the event is provided. A bus will pick-up at 5:20 p.m. and drop-off at roughly 8:20 p.m. at McMicken Circle (between Teachers College and McMicken Hall) on that Wednesday evening. Snacks and refreshments will also be provided during the event.

Please note that applicable School of Education courses can count this event towards field experience hours.

Hope to see you and our students there.
