Priority Deadline: April 1, 2021 Flyer: Global Teacher Seminar 2021 Flyer   Seminar: LEAD FACILITATORS: Lead Instructor: Dr. Steve Crowley (Department of Political Science, Oberlin College) Pedagogy Instructor: Daniel Redman (Ohio State U.) REGIONAL EXPERTS: Center for Latin American Studies: Dr. Guisela LaTorre (Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies, Ohio State U.) Center for Slavic and East European Studies: Dr. Steve Crowley (Department of Political Science, Oberlin College) East Asian Studies Center: Dr. Ju Hui Judy Han (Department of Gender Studies, U. California, Los Angeles) Middle East Studies Center: Dr. Danielle V. Schoon (Department of Near Eastern Languages and Cultures, Ohio State U.) This two-week seminar will inform K-12 teachers about global social justice activism and protest movements by focusing on the regions of East Asia, Eastern Europe/Eurasia, Latin America, and the Middle East. The seminar will start by giving participants a solid foundation in the relevant political, social, and historical theories in order to ground their understanding of protests and politics. Then throughout the seminar, guest experts will present regional case studies to provide comparative perspectives of what are prominent current protest movements in their region of study (social justice, corruption, environment, etc.), what hurdles activists/protestors may experience when organizing demonstrations or events, the longer history and culture of protest in the particular region, how protestors and their movement are perceived in the larger population, and how the demands of activists/protestors are considered and/or met by policy makers and reverberate in the political sphere. By the end of the seminar, our goal is to have given teachers both a strong background in the topic and regional knowledge so that teachers feel empowered to bring this topic into their classrooms whatever their discipline may be. Additionally, our aim is to enable teachers to bring more comparative perspectives into their curricula to support the global learning of Ohio K-12 students. To this end, the seminar will include sessions focused on pedagogy led by a pedagogical expert that will include brainstorming activities, discussions on how to lead conversations with students about protests and activism, and how to inspire students’ civic engagement.   Benefits: Teachers will receive a certificate of completion with 30 contact hours and 3 CEUs, curriculum resources, and a $100 stipend for attending the seminar and completing a lesson plan by August 1. The seminar is open to both pre-service and in-service teachers and is free of charge.    The seminar is organized by the Center for Slavic and East European Studies Center (CSEES), in partnership with the East Asian Studies Center (EASC), Center for Latin American Studies (CLAS), and Middle East Studies Center (MESC) with support from the U.S. Department of Education Title VI Grants.     Online (Application required) East Asian Studies Center easc@osu.edu America/New_York public
