In March and April, ALBA’s Peter N. Carroll and Sebastiaan Faber worked with more than two dozen high school teachers in Newton, Massachusetts, and Columbus, Ohio to develop human-rights lesson plans based on primary materials from the Spanish Civil War. The March workshop, hosted by Michael Kozuch at South Newton High School, was organized with Rich Cairn of the Northampton-based Collaborative for Educational Services, with Kelley Brown as master teacher. The April workshop was co-sponsored by Ohio Humanities (a division of the National Endowment for the Humanities), the Ohio Resource Center, the Ohio Council for the Social Studies, and Oberlin College, and hosted at the Goldberg Center (Ohio State University). Tracy Blake and Bobbi Mucha served as master teachers. For the summer and fall, the ALBA institute is planning sessions in Detroit, Michigan; Bergen County, New Jersey; New York City; Columbus, Ohio; and Boston, Massachusetts as well as other sites still to be determined.

    I am trying to reach some of the high school history teachers that participated in your ALBA Teacher Institute last year(I believe) near where I live in Northampton MA.

    I am interested in contacting them as with Adam Hochschild’s recent publishing of his book Spain in Our Hearts, and family members of mine that he includes in his book, I thought they might be interested in collaborating on some kind of presentation or discussion incorporating aspects of the book and the history with their lesson plans.
    Thank you,
