U.S.-Russian Relations: Engagement Through Content, Pedagogy and Resources

Tuesday, December 8, 2015 - 8:30am to 4:00pm

CGIS South Building, Room S050, 1730 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA 02138

This one-day teacher workshop, open to middle, high school and community college educators, will provide participants with an understanding of the current state of international affairs between the U.S. and Russia. The day will feature content, pedagogy and engagement with resources so that educators can immediately bring the material and concepts back into the classroom.

The morning will be spent reviewing recent events in the U.S.-Russia relationship, using the historical relationship between the two nations as a benchmark, with university staff and guest speaker Gregory Feifer, former Moscow correspondent for NPR and author of The Russians: The People Behind the Power. After lunch (which will be provided) participants will be introduced to relevant resourcs that explore the topic of U.S.-Russian relations, including a new curriculum resource developed at the Davis Center that explores the question of whether or not trust is a prerequisite for a productive foreign policy relationship, using the U.S. and Russia as a case study.

Please register for this event here.

The cost to participate in the workshop is $20. Checks, addressed to the President and Fellows of Harvard College, can be sent by mail to the address below. Your registration will only be complete when your check has been received.
