Join us May 19 for TEACHx 2017 to explore “Social Media as a Tool for Inclusive Teaching: Creative Approaches to Difficult Dialogues,” a keynote address by Dr. Marcia Chatelain. Chatelain, a historian active in social media, organized her fellow scholars in a social media response to the 2014 crisis in Ferguson, Missouri, titled #FergusonSyllabus. #FergusonSyllabus has led to similar initiatives online and has shaped curricular projects in K-12 settings as well as academia.
Chatelain is an associate professor of history and African American studies at Georgetown University. She grew up in Chicago and authored South Side Girls: Growing Up in the Great Migration. She frequently speaks on food justice, social justice, and inclusive teaching. She will be a National Endowment for the Humanities Fellow for the 2017-2018 academic year.

Come explore how social media might be an effective tool for your classroom.
