68.77.89: Czechoslovakia from Invasion to Revolution Workshop in Madison July 11-13

Wednesday, February 21, 2018

Registration for CREECA's educator workshop, 68.77.89: Czechoslovakia from Invasion to Revolution, is now open! The workshop, co-sponsored by the National Czech & Slovak Museum & Library, will take place July 11-13, 2018, at the Madison Concourse Hotel.

More about the workshop:

68.77.89 introduces educators to the causes and legacies of Czechoslovakia’s culture of dissent. Educators will hear from expert speakers on topics including the 1968 Prague Spring uprising and its aftermath, the Charter 77 movement, and the 1989 Velvet Revolution. Participants will explore primary sources and classroom-ready activities through interactive modules, and they will work with museum staff and a curriculum development specialist on incorporating the workshop content into their lesson plans. Participants will come away with new tools for engaging with students on the Prague Spring and Velvet Revolution, as well as new ideas for applying lessons from Czechoslovakia’s totalitarian past to today’s globalized world.

The workshop is open to Wisconsin and Iowa educators. While the content and activities may be of most interest to middle and high school teachers, elementary school teachers, community college instructors, school administrators, and librarians are also welcome to participate. As usual, we have a limited number of hotel rooms available free of charge for educators coming from outside Dane County. Hotel rooms are available on a first come, first served basis, so register soon!

Registration ends June 1, 2018. To register, visit:
