This four day workshop will take place at the Framingham History Center’s Edgell Memorial Library from 9:00 a.m. – 4:30 p.m., July 8-11, 2014.

The workshop will focus on the Civil War collections and archives at the Framingham History Center and the Massachusetts Historical Society as well as recently published works on local Civil War history, a walking tour, and guest lecturers and performers. At the conclusion of the workshop teachers will create content-rich lessons that will ignite their students’ imaginations as they delve into their own community’s part in such a pivotal time in our nation’s history. One high school teacher from our first workshop remarked, “This is one of the best workshops I have attended. There was variety of speakers and activities, high-level academic content and discussion, and a sense of levity and collegiality. Bravo! Thank you!”

This institute is designed primarily for high school English and history teachers, though the material is adaptable to K-8 as well. Participating teachers will receive $100 stipends upon completion of course work. FSU PDPs (30) and graduate credits (two) will be funded by FHC. The selection of graduate credit is optional.
