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. 

These programs are made possible by the generous support of the Richard Saltonstall Charitable Foundation.
