Our Fall calendar is full!

“America & World Fascism,” ALBA Teaching Institutes program, launches a statewide series at the Ohio Council for the Social Studies (OCSS) Meeting in September, with professional development workshops following month for teachers in Cleveland and Bowling Green. Besides exploring U.S. and World History topics from the Spanish Civil War and World War II, this project introduces Human Rights subjects in more recent years based on ALBA’s rich archival sources, both written and visual. In November, ALBA’s faculty will be teaching our annual workshops in New York City and New Jersey. We’re especially excited to offer our first-ever teaching institute in Wisconsin this fall as well. For the Spring, another half dozen institutes are in the works.
