Appalachian Voices Seminar

The North Carolina Humanities Council offers professional development opportunities for educators to invigorate their teaching practice and engage student learning through innovative approaches to history, literature, and culture. Our teacher workshops examine and illuminate our personal and collective stories while asking fundamental questions about identity, work, and culture. They also encourage an appreciation of others’ stories and perspectives to transform communities through new insights. We invite educators to inquire, imagine, and learn.

We continue to reimagine the most effective way to connect with educators in North Carolina.

Current Opportunities:

Let's Talk About It

Let's Talk About It is our library discussion series which brings scholars and community members together to explore how selected books, films, or poetry illuminate a particular theme. The North Carolina Humanities Council issues a certificate to participating educators documenting their completion of the series and noting that the series has carried one certification credit in the past. It is up to local offices to award credit.  For more information and to learn about participating libraries click here.

The Let's Talk About It series is sponsored by the North Carolina Humanities Council in cooperation with the North Carolina Center for the Book. Let's Talk About It is offered in a book, film or poetry formats.
