We held two Teacher Institutes as part of the “Changing the Narrative” grant in 2018 and 2019. We invited attendees from the 2018 institute to return the following year to help assess the work of the past year. We asked them to help us gauge the degree to which we were able to change the lives of their students using some of the tools from the institute, including:
- Virtual tours of neighborhoods and personal places using Google Expeditions
- “Where I’m From” book making kits to provided a fun low-tech solution to narrative sharing
- Author residencies
At our 2019 Kellogg Changing the Narrative Teacher Institute, we also asked attendees to share their favorite topical resources. At the link below you’ll find the full list of recommendations from educators and librarians. Please keep in mind this has been checked for general accuracy but is not an official Virginia Humanities curated list of suggestions.
