Educator Workshop: Primary Sources in the Classroom

Wednesday, August 26
Thursday, August 27
Friday, August 28

As part of the Boston Athenæum's year-long program series commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the 2020 workshop will focus on materials related to women's history from the Revolutionary War through World War I. 

This year's workshop will be held in a hybrid format, with online class time on Wednesday, August 26; Thursday, August 27; and Friday, August 28, including a keynote lecture on women's suffrage with Dr. Allison K. Lang at 6 pm on Thursday, August 27. Particpants will be expected to visit the Boston Athenæum in person to view and work individually with primary source materials and develop a lesson plan as a final project. The deadline for final projects will be determined based on the availability of physical access to the library at the time of the workshop and may be as long as one year from the workshop dates. 

The workshop is open to classroom teachers of all grades, homeschool educators, school librarians, and museum educators. Participants are expected to attend all workshop sessions.
