There are still about two weeks left to sign up for the Alabama Humanities Foundation’s SUPER Institute, “Sense of Place: Stories of Alabama in History and Fiction,” which will be held at Auburn University at Montgomery from June 26 – 29. Nancy Anderson will be the lead scholar, and I will be the master teacher for the workshop.
The SUPER teacher workshops are open to Alabama teachers. About this workshop, the program website explains:
This three-day residential institute will introduce teachers to resources – people, texts (nonfiction and fiction), places (in Montgomery), movies (drama, rather than documentary), and art – for them to use to introduce their students to Alabama’s rich and varied history and culture. Scholars will guide teachers in the interpretation of new resources in their particular depiction of place in Alabama.
