Join us to explore the roots of migration and its effects on family in Latin America and the Caribbean. Highlighting the 2017 Américas Award titles, this workshop will prepare K-12 educators and librarians to engage students with topics of migration, family, and the socio-economic barriers within Central America and the Caribbean today. The Consortium of Latin American Studies Programs (CLASP) presents the 2017 Américas Award teacher workshop hosted by American University's International Training & Education Program.
Speakers will include 2017 Américas Award winner author of The Only Road Alexandra Diaz, as well as Reyna Grande, author of The Distance Between Us, an honor book, and Nadia L. Hohn, author of Malaika's Costume, another honor book. These authors, along with a curriculum specialist, will engage participants with teaching strategies to accompany the books.
