Please join the Pulitzer Center and National Council for the Social Studies on Tuesday, May 17 at 7:00 pm ET for a free, virtual panel with members of The 1619 Project Education Network.
Educators and administrators from the inaugural cohort of 1619 Project Education Network will share their processes for planning and implementing 1619 units in multiple grade levels and courses throughout the 2021-2022 school year. Their units engage 1619 Project resources and themes by aligning them with the existing standards and objectives for their social studies classes. Panelists will outline how they identified their unit topics and focus texts, strategies they engaged to support differentiation and critical thinking, and key takeaways from their experiences teaching their units. The panel will be moderated by staff from the Pulitzer Center and will be followed by a Q&A session.

The 1619 Project Education Network is a program from the Pulitzer Center that consists of cohorts of educators from across the country who collaborate together with award winning journalists, historians, and the Pulitzer Center education team to create, teach, and share curricular resources that allow students to engage authentically and critically with the world.
The 1619 Project launched in August 2019 with a special issue of The New York Times Magazine, including essays and creative works by journalists, historians, and artists. The project illuminates the legacy of slavery in the contemporary United States, and highlights the contributions of Black Americans to every aspect of American society. In the years since its launch, The 1619 Project and the conversations it has sparked have expanded through new resources, including a podcast, a book-length anthology, and a children's book.
