Cultures of Independence: A NEH Teacher Workshop

Cultures of Independence: Perspectives on Independence Hall and the Meaning of Freedom

Applications are now being accepted for this new NEH-funded teacher workshop.  Cultures of Independence: Perspectives on Independence Hall and the Meaning of Freedom will raise awareness of how Independence Hall has been involved in the ongoing process of creating a nation and civic life, not just in the magical moment of July 1776.  During each day of  a week-long workshop, 36 teachers will be immersed in a process of discovering and developing strategies for teaching the ongoing history of the American Revolution.   Dr. Charlene Mires, author of Independence Hall in American Memory, will be the scholar-in-residence.

The workshop will be offered twice:  June 21-26 and July 26-July 31. Applications are now being accepted through March 2, 2015.  

Cultures of Independence has been made possible in part by a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Celebrating 50 Years of Excellence
