The War in Ukraine: Context for the K-14 Classroom

Event Format
In person
CGIS South, 1730 Cambridge Street, Cambridge, MA

The landscape of Ukraine and the lives of the Ukrainian people have faced disruption since conflict with Russia erupted in 2014. Disruption became catastrophe when Russia staged a full-on military invasion of Ukraine in February 2022. Over 6 months later, the conflict and its impact continues. At this full-day, in-person workshop, intended for middle, high school and community college educators, we will  discuss Ukrainian history, the foundation of the Ukrainian state and its democratic development, Ukraine-Russia relations and the current state of the war. 

The cost of participation is $25/person. Checks made out to Presidents and Fellows of Harvard College can be mailed in advance to the address below or provided the day of the workshop. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Ten PDPs will be awarded to all participating educators.
