Disability and Identity in History, Literature, and Media

A one-week institute for 30 K-12 educators on disability and identity in history and literature.

Wayne State University College of Education proposes a new week-long summer institute for twenty-eight K-12 teachers. Kindergarten through fifth grade teachers will be given preference. Guest Faculty will teach about identity and disability identity, and engage in deep discussions with participants. Institute Scholars will benefit from discussions with faculty and other Institute Scholars, pursue independent or collaborative projects, use analysis skills with primary sources, and translate their learning into their teaching. Cultural texts, including the texts of the K-12 curriculum, are embedded with frames of references often portraying disability identity as crystallized rather than evolving. With leadership from a team of renowned Guest Faculty, Institute Scholars will explore disability identity as it is represented in the K-12 curriculum.
