In recent years, studies have shown that students learn best when they see themselves reflected in curricular materials and classroom instruction. Furthermore, studies show that understanding the experiences and contributions of diverse groups of people benefits every student, not just those from diverse groups.
The Johns Hopkins University Institute for Education Policy and UnidosUS, the largest Latino civil rights organization in the country, invite you to join a virtual discussion as we share insights from our new report, Inclusion of Latino Contributions in U.S. History Textbooks. The report constitutes a first step in learning about the extent, quality, and variety of classroom content that reflects the contributions and experiences of the Latino community in shaping America.
This webinar will unpack key findings about how teachers, educators, and regional policymakers can support in making changes to existing curricula, reframing how Latino contributions to the United States are taught in K-12 schools and inspire an understanding of the unique role Latinos play in U.S. History.
