Teaching about the Civil War and Slavery
Our workshops are participatory, so come ready to be engaged and inspired!
Participants will be be introduced to the Choices Program’s award-winning resources and approach to teaching about contested topics in U.S. History
Teachers will be immersed in The Civil War and will examine parts of A New Nation. Both curriculum units are provided. Participants will discuss ways to adapt these units to specific classroom goals.
Participants will have the opportunity to network with exemplary colleagues in social studies education from across the area. We will also share other opportunities at Brown University for you and your students to engage in innovate content on this time period in U.S. history.
Workshop includes the two curriculum units, lunch, and a certificate of completion.
A limited number of partial scholarships are available for pre-service teachers.
History and other social studies educators are the main audience. Materials are appropriate for grades 7-12. Humanities teachers often use our materials and are encouraged to attend.
