Teaching about the Civil War
Our workshops are completely interactive, so be ready to be engaged and inspired!
Participants will be immersed in The Civil War unit (provided) and discuss ways to use the unit in the U.S. History classroom to meet specific classroom goals.
You will also be introduced to the Choices Program’s award-winning resources and approach for teaching about contested topics in U.S. History, network with exemplary colleagues in social studies education from across the area, and learn about additional opportunities at Brown University for you and your students to engage in innovate content on this time period in U.S. history.
Workshop fee includes The Civil War curriculum unit, lunch, and a certificate of completion.
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.
