Looking for a way to present Philadelphia history in a fresh light? Want to emphasize global connectedness through time?
Over the last year, the Educator’s Blog has featured Philadelphia history as seen through a lens of the City's participation in a global context. On Saturday, April 14, HSP partners with Global Philadelphia to present a teacher workshop that delves more deeply into these topics and provide you with resources for the classroom.
This teacher workshop for those teaching U.S. and World history is built on the rich blog series about Philadelphia history written by Sarah Sharp, the Educator of World Heritage Philadelphia, who has used HSP primary sources to tell some of that story (http://hsp.org/education/for-teachers/educators-blog). Come interact with the sources yourself and develop ways of incorporating this history into your classroom, examining race, gender, and class across time. You will have a chance to choose two of these three topics for in-depth study: the colonial and new nation period, War of 1812 through Civil War, and Reconstruction through 20th century. Refreshments will be served, and instructional materials distributed.
Register now as the workshop is filling up! The workshop is from 9:30 a.m.- 12:30 p.m. Act 48 credit is available.
