Center for the Teaching of History

Teacher Workshops

The MHS develops and implements a full schedule of workshops on a variety of American history topics. Participants become historians as they investigate materials from the Society’s collections and discuss methods for using these primary sources in the classroom. Half-day to week-long workshops often include appearances by noted scholars, visits to partnering historical sites, and opportunities to view treasures from the Society’s collections. 

At present, there are no events to display in this category. Events are being planned, and will become visible when their details are established. Please try back in a week's time.
