From literature, to the engineering process, to media instruction and the arts, the series hopes to engage a variety of educators, teaching a variety of disciplines. Not only will educators be introduced to subject matter experts, storytellers and artists, they’ll be provided with detailed lesson ideas to engage their students around American Portrait’s specific question prompts, and encouraged to help their students contribute to the project’s wide tapestry of stories and personal narrative in hopes of answering the quintessential question: who are we? PBS will provide a certificate of attendance for each one hour virtual professional learning event.
