What was William Penn's vision for Pennsylvania? How did he and other early colonist interact with the Lenni Lenape? These questions will be addressed in this teacher workshop where teachers also see original treaties and maps.
HSP and History Making Productions are combining forces with Pennsbury Manor and the American Swedish Historical Museum for a wonderful program dedicated to William Penn and the founding of Pennsylvania. While those stories are foundations of local history lessons, this workshop will provide teachers of various grade levels with new knowledge and techniques for sharing this content with students. The morning is capped with a lunch-time lecture by Douglas Miller, Historic Site Administrator of Pennsbury Manor: "A walk to remember….the Walking Purchase and the Lenape."
Teachers will discover innovative and interdisciplinary ways to bring William Penn and Lenni-Lenape history to life for their students. During the workshop, teachers will view sections of A Lost World and In Penn’s Shadows, discover original treaties and maps for the city of Philadelphia, and participate in hands-on activities. They also will leave with free resources tied to the PA and Common Core Standards.
Tickets for this program are $10, including a light lunch, and participants will receive Act 48 credit. If you have any questions, please email Education Manager Alicia Parks at firstname.lastname@example.org.
