Professional Development Program Type
Professional Development Program Audience
The goal of this workshop is to instruct educators on the disability history of the FDR Memorial in Washington DC and how to incorporate that history into instruction. The disability history to be covered focuses on the campaign for disability representation at the FDR Memorial, disability rights overall and the connection to the civil rights movement. Additional topics related to the FDR and Eleanor Roosevelt era that allow for intersectional teaching opportunities will also be explored such as – but not limited to the experience of African Americans and Japanese Americans – during that time.
