Workshop for Teachers: How to Integrate the Spanish Civil War Into Your Social Studies Syllabus

Join us for an introduction to a rich and diverse collection of primary and secondary source material that deals with the Spanish Civil War and the development of anti-fascism in the United States. How can we incorporate these materials into our teaching? In what ways do the stories of the women and men of the Abraham Lincoln Brigade challenge the historical narratives that dominate social studies teaching and the status quo in this country? Why is keeping their legacy alive so vital?

This session is open to Hofstra students in the Secondary Education program and Long Island social studies teachers.

Moderator: Dr. Alan Singer, Director Secondary Education Social Studies Program
Department of Teaching, Learning, and Technology
Hofstra University
