Haiti Study Circle 2011-12

In this study circle, K-Adult educators will build a repository of curriculum based on the history, culture and people of Haiti. We will store lesson plans in language arts, social studies, math and science, on a wiki devoted exclusively to the Why Teach Haiti? Study Circle. The discussion board will be a site to share best practices fueled by our classroom experiences this past school year. In addition, the Study Circle is a place to foster learning the history of Haiti and its relationship to the United States throughout its existence. Finally, this space is to be used to address the additional needs of the participating Circle educators, as they become evident.

Facilitated by Patricia Barthaud, Adult Education teacher, Special Ed. Paraprofessional, Ed.D, Human Rights Education student, University of San Francisco
