Join the George Washington Teacher Institute and Connecticut Historical Society for a FREE one-day workshop in Hartford, Connecticut. Teaching the American Revolution with Primary Sources will focus on identifying ways to teach the American Revolution using the new Connecticut Elementary and Secondary Social Studies Frameworks. Sessions focused on historical content and classroom-based primary source activities will prepare educators to empower their students to learn history through new methods and master new skills.
PLEASE NOTE: The content of this program will best support Social Studies educators who teach the 5th and 8th grades. Primary source workshop elements will be transferrable across Dimension 2's historical disciplinary concept of Historical Sources and Evidence.
