Teaching with Historic Places
This workshop is designed for teachers, museum and historic site volunteers, educators, or anyone interested in learning how a place can be used to teach history and social studies to children, ages 8-13. The Teaching with Historic Places program, developed by the National Park Service, is explored as a model and resource for workshop participants to develop their own customized lessons for specific sites. Observation, inquiry, analysis, field study and hands-on activities are examined as instructional strategies. The class will be held at Drew University, Monday-Wednesday, July 23rd-25th, from 9 am to 4 pm and costs $465.
