The Iowa State University School of Education has announced the offering of a new course exploring Iowa's role in the Civil Rights movement.

The new course called, “Teaching and Learning Iowa History: Iowans and The Civil Rights Movement”, will be open to all to take and will be taught primarily online.

The class looks into the history of racial segregation in Iowa, as well as the roles Iowan's played in the national Civil Rights Movement.

The course, which will be offered free of charge to community members, will be taught from July 1 through July 31.

University students can receive three undergraduate or graduate credits, but will have to pay the appropriate cost per credit.

For teachers in Iowa, the course has been approved by the Iowa Department of Education fro one, two or three licensure renewal credits. The cost is $75 per licensure renewal credit.

Those taking the course for credit will need to participate in a ‘Best Practices Workshop Day' on July 15 at Iowa State University and an 'Archives Visit Day' on July 22 at participating museums across the state.
