Workshop Summary: Drawing inspiration from our family stories and ancestors, this Ethnic Studies-centered program begins with a talk about the role family history can play in teaching Ethnic Studies by connecting our past to the present and then guides educators on how to build critical family history projects. Participants will learn how to use engaging online tools and resources to customize a family history project that best suits their classroom needs. The ultimate goal is for students to situate their ancestors and themselves within a larger context and as part of the American narrative.
