5-Week Institute for Teachers in March and April Successful

May 19, 2022

ALBA’s New York Workshop, 2017.

In March and April, ALBA offered a five-week online workshop to close to 30 teachers from the United States and elsewhere, working with the Collaborative for Educational Services of Massachusetts. “It was really great that this course prioritized primary sources as a way to actively engage students,” a participant wrote at the end of the course, “I will utilize this in human rights and memory courses I teach forever!” another said. “This has probably been one of my most enjoyable historical/educational experiences I’ve had,” a third commented.

ALBA’s website offers an extensive series of educational resources, including lesson plans and primary sources. A recent addition is a script written by Dan Lynn Watt and Molly Lynn Watt based on the Spanish Civil War letters between George and Ruth Watt. Download the full play script here.
