Alexandria Library Sit-in at the Virginia Council for Social Studies Educators’ Conference

Nancy Noyes Silcox, author of Samuel Wilbert Tucker: The Story of a Civil Rights Trailblazer and the 1939 Alexandria Library Sit-in, and Linda J. Mitchell, Librarian at Stonewall Middle School in Manassas, Virginia will present “Collaborate for Powerful Teaching and Learning” at the VCSSE conference in Richmond, November 3-4, 2017. They will share how teachers and librarians collaborate to study civil rights history and violent and nonviolent protests, including the Alexandria Library sit-in. A “stations” instructional design puts students “in the driver’s seat” of their own learning.
