In this workshop, we will look closely at the Divisive Concepts Bill in Georgia (The Protect Students First Act) to better understand the Bill and how it impacts teachers and schools. We will also think specifically about K-5 Social Studies standards and how to teach within this new context.

Workshop Facilitator:  Melissa Kurtz
