Save the Date: Far North Ethnic Studies High School Symposium – CSU CHICO
SAVE THE DATE!
Far North Ethnic Studies High School Symposium at CSU CHICO
We ask that you Save the Date now for this event that will feature: Miguel Zavala (Cal State LA Professor and author of Rethinking Ethnic Studies) as Keynote Speaker, Dawniell Black (K-12 Curriculum and Instruction Program Specialist Elk Grove) presenting district implementation and planning support, and presentations from our 9 work groups that have written local curriculum you can use to meet the Ethnic Studies requirement ranging on Ethnic Literature, the Tulelake Incarceration Camp, African American Studies, Chicano-Latinx, Asian American, Native American, and Environmental Science.
We ask that you register a team (consisting of teachers, administrators, counselors, superintendents, etc.) as there will be time to take a course outline, and begin to build out a syllabus using resources created locally. Our region spans from Butte County to Siskiyou all the way over to Humboldt (11 counties!), so we will have time to collaborate within our counties and with others designing similar courses across the North State.
Free to all high school Ethnic Studies course designing teams (administrators and teachers)
- Stipend for attendance and submission of team course outline: $500
- Travel stipends for out of town (100+ miles from Chico): $400
- District can bill for substitute coverage
Registration for your team will open at the end of January, and it will be First Come First Serve for stipends and travel costs.
