Fellow-Led Workshop: Women and the American StorySpecial EventVirtual
Wednesday, Mar 06, 2024
CTLE credit available
In this ninety-minute session, we will explore The New-York Historical Society’s innovative and well-researched Women and the American Story (WAMS) curriculum by taking a deep dive through one segment of history—the Jazz Age. In particular, we will explore how women of diverse backgrounds experienced this era by using lesser-known primary sources and primary source analysis techniques used in history and museum education. Through this hands-on workshop, educators will learn to navigate all eras and areas of the WAMS curriculum, and think about how they can replace units in their own teaching to center the narrative of less featured women in American history.
CTLE credit will be provided.
