Teach-in

Human Trafficking 101

In 2017, to highlight January as National Slavery and Human Trafficking Prevention Month, Howard-Bostic, the Anti-Human Trafficking Task force, and multiple community partners organized a "Teach In on Human Trafficking." The local community was invited to campus to learn about the dangers of human trafficking and ways to prevent and eliminate this worldwide problem. Stakeholders from law enforcement, legislative representatives and attorneys, healthcare advocates, and social workers educated the campus community. Howard-Bostic facilitated the panel discussion and Q & A session. The event also included a ted talk video and dynamic spoken word poetry as digital tools for empowerment. Following the panel, there were four breakout sessions to engage participants. There was a panel about law enforcement, a group discussion about legislation, a study circle about community, and a mini conference about health care workers responses to human trafficking situations. Eastern Panhandle HEAT, Aglow, Bethany Christian Services, Blue Campaign, and Faith Alliance Against Slavery and Trafficking were partnering organizations. There were approximately 120 participants in attendance.

Overview, The Great Teachers Seminar

In April of 2016, Dr. Chiquita Howard-Bostic gave a Focus on Student Learning (FOSL) presentation to showcase her experience at the West Virginia Great Teachers Seminar at North Bend State Park in Cairo, West Virginia. She discussed the sociological imagination and one's the ability to perceive situations and circumstances in a wide social context. She taught the audience to observe how interactions and actions influence other individuals/situations. "Teaching provides an excellent context to explore the world," she explained. "Great teachers are always looking for opportunities to increase their own knowledge and passionate teachers understand that educators must become guides to learning."
