November 14, 2015
The American Council for Polish Culture participated in the Exhibit called Polish Perspectives at the 96th National Council for the Social Studies Conference at the Ernest N. Memorial Convention Center Warehouse District, New Orleans, Louisiana. This was the 16th year that the ACPC participated. The Polish Perspectives exhibit was located in the International Alley.
Participating this year were Debbie Majka past president of ACPC, Cecilia and Raymond Glembocki and Jason Franzen from Minnesota. At this particular conference, there were 3,679 educators in attendance with 190 exhibiting organizations. Teachers were from Alaska, Tennessee, Mississippi, Florida, Illinois, Arizona, Alabama, New York, Georgia, Wisconsin, Maryland, Virginia and California all with the same requests…. seeking materials for their classes in World History, Holocaust Studies, American History, and Social Studies classes. We were equipped with educational materials for teachers and received many comments about the amount of material available and the effort we made to make the booth come alive with customs and traditions.
