Especially for Pennsylvania teachers, the Historical Society of Pennsylvania is offering a one-week summer Institute entitled Becoming U.S.: Teaching Historic Immigration in Current Times.  Forty educators will be introduced to archival research and provided strategies for teaching immigration today through use of primary source materials and innovative classroom strategies. The institute will simultaneously engage the teachers with HSP’s renowned archival collections that document the stories of past immigrant groups and their experiences while delving into how to use these stories and collections to make social studies curriculum more effective.
