STORYTELLING/CREATIVE WRITING TEACHERS (free resource) by Bear Guerra

Via Voice of Witness:

“The Sharing History Initiative introduces oral history and social justice storytelling to under-resourced classrooms and communities around the United States by providing educators, storytellers, and advocates with free books & free culturally relevant curricula.

This national book placement program has placed 4,200 copies of our books in more than 150 schools and organizations around the U.S. since 2015, and offers a dynamic approach for teaching and learning our most pressing human rights issues.

In a political climate that threatens the safety and rights of immigrant communities in the U.S., many educators are searching for resources that address these issues in ways that are culturally relevant and meaningful to the students they serve. To address this need, the 2019-2020 Sharing History Initiative will offer teaching resources and free class sets of Solito, Solita: Crossing Borders with Youth Refugees from Central America. Each set will also include one copy of our methodology book, Say It Forward: A Guide to Social Justice Storytelling.”

DEADLINE: June 30.
