Jazz as Global Experiment, An Academy for Teachers Master Class with Arturo O’Farrill (CTLE credits given)

Open to: All Full-time Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Jazz is widely described as an American invention, but it belongs to no single nation-state. We will examine jazz as an inheritance of Africa, a response to the slave trade, and a dignified gift of love and generosity in return for brutality and violence. Filtered through and influenced by all of the Americas, jazz is best exemplified as a global experiment in human freedom and triumph over oppression. CTLE-credit [insert link: http://www.highered.nysed.gov/tcert/resteachers/ctle.html%5D is available. This program is free for public and charter school teachers, and participants are selected by application and nomination.
Key dates:  October 15 and 29 and November 6, 2020, 4:00-5:15 p.m.
Location: Virtual
Registration deadline: 09/22/2020
