Young Authors Conference Teacher Workshop
In the fall of 2015, the 2018 Young Authors Conference keynote, Green Card Voices, produced a teaching guide Voices of Immigrant Storytellers: Teaching Guide for Middle and High Schools designed with a diverse student body in mind by using real‐life immigrant stories as its core content. The Teaching Guide and its 10 lessons, guide students and teachers through a historic, cultural and personal journey. Although geared towards a social studies classroom and based on its subsequent core standards, the 10 lessons can be easily adapted to grades 6-12 and other disciplines.
On each day of the 2018 Young Authors Conference, Green Card Voices' staff invited educators to a workshop on how to use this educational resource in your classroom.
