Description

Mission 4: City of Immigrants Teacher Training and Educational Outreach Initiat Mission 4: City of Immigrants Teacher Training and Educational Outreach Initiative KAET proposes to hold a large teacher training workshop on MISSION US for middle school educators from each of the participating districts on a single day event in downtown Phoenix on the ASU Campus in the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism. Publicity for the workshop opportunity will be shared with district and school leaders, as well as the Arizona Council for the Social Studies organization. The specific idea of hosting it in June 2015 is to allow teachers time over the summer to integrate the new MISSIONs into curriculum. A session overview of the previous MISSIONs For Crown or Colony?, Flight to Freedom, A Cheyenne Odyssey will be helpful to provide so those educators who have only implemented For Crown or Colony? can explore potential implementation of all MISSION US resources. Also, an introduction to the ASU Walter Cronkite School of Journalism PIN (Professional Interest Network) will provide teachers some additional knowledge on a resource of primary source speakers available to access through the PIN team as potential guest speakers or mentors for students exploring historical eras and themes. In addition, if a speaker would complement the teacher training workshop itself, PIN has offered to assist in arrangement and hosting. Finally, various cultural heritage groups from the Greater Phoenix area will be invited to participate with exhibit tables during lunch. The Irish Cultural Center, Japanese Friendship Garden, Chinese Cultural Center, the Anti-Defamation League - Arizona, City of Phoenix Latino Institute, the George Washington Carver Museum & Cultural Center, and others.
