Join Us for Act 48 Activities This Fall

2018-08-08 08:54


HSP has a variety of exciting ways this fall for teachers to learn historical content and think about new ways of teaching history, writing, and art– from a mini-course to collaborations with the Philadelphia Museum of Art and History Making Productions.  Check out the listings and book now at

1968: The Year That Shattered America offers teachers a chance to explore this tumultuous period of history. Combining primary source workshops with public lectures over three Wednesday evenings, teachers explore ways to turn stories of 1968 Philadelphia into engaging classroom activities.  Act 48 credit will be awarded for each workshop attended, and participants will have an opportunity to earn extra credits by attending all workshops and completing classroom activities with their students.  In addition, explore more of 1968 on December 1 when we reprise to a successful model of combining primary sources with short films by History Making Production.

On November 3, we welcome a chance to collaborate with the Philadelphia Museum of Art to discover how archival materials and works of art together expand our understanding of history and art.  We will meet in PMA’s galleries using reproductions of HSP’s related collections – material you will be able to take back to the classroom.

Last, but not least, HSP again is the host for the annual NHD Philly Kick-Off on October 29.  Come to learn about this award-winning project-based program from the national Program Director Lynne O’Hara as well as check out resources from over a dozen of Philadelphia’s cultural institutions.
