As Russia’s war in Ukraine continues, we recognize that both educators and students want to learn more about Ukraine and its relationship with Russia. This two-session workshop will focus on furthering participants’ understanding of Ukrainian culture and history. The first session led by Nicholas Breyfogle (Ohio State U.) will focus on Ukrainian history: its shared history with Russia, what is and what is not Ukrainian history, and nationalist interpretations of both histories. The second session led by Alisa Ballard Lin (Ohio State U.) will focus on Ukrainian culture and how Ukrainians perceive their culture as being unique from Russian culture or perhaps how they see them as being similar. By attending this workshop, participants will receive background and resources on this topic so that they can teach and discuss this subject with their students in their own classrooms.
This workshop is free and open to pre- and in-service K-12 and community college educators across the United States. This workshop will be limited to 40 participants, those who register after the maximum capacity has been filled will be placed on a waitlist.
Participants will receive:
- A certificate for 6 contact hours
- 4 free books on the workshop topics
- $50 stipend for attending both workshop sessions
- Free curriculum resources
