The Boston Athenaeum invites you to join us for “Primary Sources in the Classroom,” a workshop focused on expanding the use of visual and textual primary sources in classroom teaching.
As part of the BA's year-long commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, our 2020 workshop will explore US women's history from the Revolutionary War through World War I, including a keynote lecture on women's suffrage by Allison K. Lange, PhD.
Workshop participants will engage in a combination of group and individual activities to demonstrate and develop strategies and practices that are applicable to teaching any historical era or event.
Who Should Attend
The workshop is designed primarily for teachers of students in grades 5 through 12.
Teachers of all grade levels, homeschool educators, school librarians, and museum educators are welcome to register.
To foster a collaborative learning environment, workshop attendance is limited to 20 people.
Participants must have their own laptops or tablets and internet connection. The workshop will take place on Zoom and will include both video and sound.
Benefits of Participation
All participants will receive a one-year individual membership to the BA.
Licensed Massachusetts educators will receive Professional Development Points (PDPs) for successfully completing the workshop and all assignments and assessments by December 31, 2020.
