Workshop at War in the Pacific NHP

May 14, 2014

War in the Pacific National Historical Park is pleased to announce its first ever educator professional development workshop, titled History Methods: Teaching with Historic Places. In partnership with Guam Preservation Trust, the workshop will explore how historic places can enrich the teaching of history and the social sciences and foster commitment to stewardship of national historic resources. The course will take place from July 22 to August 1, Monday through Friday from 10am to 4pm.

The History Methods: Teaching with Historic Places Workshop will engage participants in the study of historic places as three-dimensional documents used to understand history and historical change and continuity. School-based educators and members of the preservation and museum communities will be brought together to forge linkages between the richness of historic places and the needs of the social sciences curriculum. As the cumulative course project, teachers will produce a Teaching with Historic Places lesson plan.
