What Will We Do?
While the mornings and the readings for the program will focus on Lillian Smith and the Civil Rights Movement in Georgia, the program will bring together the arts, history, literature, environmental science, and more, providing opportunities for interdisciplinary conversations that will benefit our students and our educational communities. In the afternoons, the participants will take part in a variety of activities from lesson plan construction to discussions of environmental science at the camp and in the region. As such, we will have speakers and facilitators throughout the week to discuss the ways to have these conversations within the classroom.
The program is open to any K-12 educator in Georgia. Participants will receive professional development hours; a $200 honorarium; complimentary copies of the books and texts for the program, and complimentary housing in the LES Center’s bunkhouses for the week.
