April 20 @ 2:00 pm 3:00 pm EDT

Join us on April 20th, 2022 at 2 PM EST for a Town Hall – Expanding the Curriculum: Supporting Connecticut’s Ethnic Studies Curriculum. During this event, Centro Education Policy Researcher, Dr. Elizabeth Taveras Rivera will interview Paquita Jarman-Smith and Nitza Diaz, Consultants for Connecticut’s State Education Resource Center, SERC, to learn about their work with the African American, Black, Latino, and Puerto Rican Curricula at the high school level. The purpose is to learn about the legislation, curriculum roll-out, and teacher training in the first semester of implementation. Through this interview, we learn the best practices that can inform stakeholders in other states on the process from legislation to implementation so that more students are able to learn about the contributions of Latinx and Puerto Ricans in the United States and learn how the Latino and Puerto Rican Curriculum integrates material from Centro’s digital collections. Be sure to hold your questions until the end for when we have our Q&A! Bilingual translation services will be offered.
