ABOUT THIS EVENT
The National Women’s History Museum, in accordance with its mission to educate, inspire, empower, shape the future, and provide a complete view of American history, is pleased to offer a summer institute specifically for K-12 educators as part of the Museum’s continued celebration of the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment, observed on August 26th 2020.
This one-day intensive workshop, with excursion offerings planned for after the workshop, is hosted in collaboration with the George Washington University Museum and numerous like-missioned partners.
The main day workshop will feature inspiring speakers, peer-to-peer networking opportunities, and break-out sessions with practical resources that support classroom teaching and learning on topics related to the history of woman suffrage, women’s history in the U.S., and methods for using primary sources in creative and dynamic ways to encourage further student research and civic engagement.
Post-excursion offerings the following day provide opportunities to explore sites relevant to women’s history and women’s commemorations in and around the Washington, D.C., metro area.
