Philly in the Founding Era: Teaching 18th Century Philadelphia History through Primary Sources

One-day Educator Workshop

Saturday, April 29, 2017, 9AM – 4PM

Begins at Philadelphia Museum of Art, transportation provided to and from the National Constitution Center

COST:  $40

Join educators from the Philadelphia Museum of Art and the National Constitution Center to explore teaching with primary sources.  Critically evaluating objects, documents, and artworks teaches students important skills such as using evidence to support interpretation and identifying point-of-view.  Sessions at both museums and a tour of historic Old City provide a diversity of approaches to address our essential question: “How do primary sources help us understand American identity?”

7 NJ or PA professional development credit hours

More information about this workshop and registration will be available on our LEARN page in early March.
