Free NCSCE Webinar: Grassroots Histories and the Arts and Sciences 

This Webinar will feature quick, high impact things we can do now in our current classes that will develop our students’ powers of visual, scientific and verbal expression.  The idea driving this project is empowering our students to record from the grassroots level how the pandemic has affected their lives, to help themselves and others see and understand across cultural divides and to argue for social justice.  The project starts modestly with teachers and faculty in courses across the curriculum offering students extra credit for creating their own Grassroots Histories.  Our goal is to help students look at their everyday lives with the eyes of writers, visual artists, scientists and historians.  The grassroots histories our students create may eventually become part of the historical narrative of our times.

Presenters: Frank Wattenberg (U.S. Military Academy (emeritus), Marianna Bonanome and Katherine Poirier (New York City College of Technology)
