In addition to our interactive repository, TIM will impact K-12 teachers in a direct way.

During the summers of 2018, 2019, and 2021, we will host weeklong summer institutes at the University of Virginia for K-12 teachers in Virginia and surrounding states, providing information about teachers in the civil rights movement.

 

In each institute, teachers will develop age-appropriate lesson plans and instructional materials that will be housed in the interactive repository. Teachers will also learn how to use oral history to teach civil rights and related issues in their classrooms.
