Join educators from the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation on the third Tuesday of September, October and November 2022, and January, February and March 2023 at 7 p.m. EST for free 90-minute online professional development opportunities for teachers. Each virtual session explores a different topic from our past and connects it to our future with ideas and resources for sharing the content in the classroom.
Sessions provide background information to enhance understanding of historical topics, discuss methodologies and curricular content to help educators enhance their lessons and conclude with a Q&A opportunity.
These workshops are presented using Zoom and are designed to be interactive through chat and conversation. Following each session, certificates of participation will be sent to participants listing the program title, date and length. Participants should check with their school district concerning professional development points.
- learn historic content to increase their depth of knowledge and to enrich their classroom lessons.
- receive resources and strategies for how to present the content to students in an engaging manner that encourages learning.
