Teaching Race, Place, and History through Landscape
Finn, John C.; Mazzocca, Ann E.; Goetz, Evan; Gibson, Lisa
Geography Teacher, v12 n4 p152-158 2015
This article provides a brief overview of the March 2014 workshop that the authors organized with approximately thirty pre-and in-service teachers from around the state of Virginia. The authors' broad focus in this workshop was the connection between race and the cultural landscape in Virginia. The goals were relatively simple: to get teachers and future teachers from around the state to think about, to study, to "see", and to engage with how race and the history of race in the United States plays out in the cultural landscape, both in extraordinary places and ordinary ones. To that end, this article provides a brief introduction to the cultural and racialized landscape, outlines the specifics of the workshop based on these themes, and discusses some of the "breakthrough" moments of the workshop. The authors also engage with the specific feedback they received from workshop participants.
