Please note that this is an educator's workshop. I specifically asked them about bringing students. They said that middle school & high school students were welcomed.
The Birmingham International Center's educational program will focus on India this year. Presenters from India, along with local and national experts, will present India's history and culture through a wide range of activities. Activities will be hands-on workshops, discussions of current affairs and lesson plans for various academic units. Additionally the lunch provided for attendees will feature cuisine from the different regions of India. Attendees will receive continuing education units, web site and literary resource materials as well as materials supplied by the Indian government that can be taken back and used in the classroom. The curricular materials are aligned with the Alabama State Standards by subject and grade level. Teachers from grades K-12 are invited to attend.
The workshop will be held on Saturday, February 25, 2012. For more information please visit the website www.bic-al.org.
