Virtual programming for classrooms available for Black History Month

Posted
The Center for Interactive Learning and Collaboration (CILC), a nonprofit that has been offering interactive virtual learning opportunities since 1994 and has content providers from across the globe, has launched a Black History Month package of virtual and interactive expeditions.
 
The programming is created for students, and are available to anyone, targeting teachers, school administrators and childcare professionals.
 
The Black History Month programming includes 10 virtual fieldtrips that teach students significant historical, cultural and societal events. Examples include a detailed look at the encounters, achievements and heroism of everyday African Americans throughout history; an opportunity to examine the meaning of race; the history of jazz; and the myths and misconceptions of Africa. “In addition to the Civil Rights Era, the fieldtrips cover everything from the American Revolution and its relationship to enslaved African Americans to the impacts of sharecropping and homesteading for Black farmers and western communities to the struggle for racial equality in the military during World War II,” states a news release.
 
Cost for these programs ranges from free to $250 per program.
