George Washington and Paul Revere: Citizenship in Action
Mount Vernon is partnering with the Paul Revere House to offer a full-day teacher professional development workshop exploring the ways in which George Washington and Paul Revere can be seen as examples of active citizens in the new nation. Teachers will spend the day learning from scholars, analyzing primary source documents, modeling how to use place as a primary source, and looking at ways to bring civics into the classroom.
The workshop is open to all K-12 teachers; however, special attention will be paid to the new Massachusetts History and Social Science Framework for 8th grade United States and Massachusetts Government and Civic Life. Coffee and lunch will be provided for all registered participants.
