COVID STATEMENT

We’re optimistically planning ahead for a safe and positive Summer 2021 Uncovering Alternative Histories program. The UAH team along with UW-Parkside Administration, UW System Board of Regents, and the Kenosha Department of Health will be monitoring the COVID-19 pandemic.  We will follow all recommended and required safety precautions in order to offer the program in July 2021.  While we don’t know what those recommendations or requirements will be, we know that they may include some or all of the following: all participants to wear face coverings; social distancing; temperature checks; COVID testing prior to the start of the program; and potentially completing a COVID-19 Safety Acknowledgment -- Liability Waiver and Release of Claims.  Stay up-to-date with UW-Parkside’s commitment to protect the health and safety of our campus and our community on our Ranger Restart webpage.

TEACHERS: THE PRESIDENTIAL ACADEMY

Teachers (preferably middle and high school social studies) will examine an alternative American history using cultural interaction in addition to traditional institutional analysis through onsite and online instruction, interactive group work, guest speakers, and place-based experiential learning (PBE). At the end of the program, you will present a newly designed lesson plan or curriculum module that presents an alternative interpretation of the role of underreprisented Americans in US history.
