New Opportunities for Teachers

We’re so pleased that the Encyclopedia project has sparked a series of extraordinary workshops for Philadelphia-area educators.  Please add these to your calendar and register now:

  • City of Neighborhoods, April 17, 4-6:30 p.m., a free workshop at the Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent.  Click here for more information and registration.
  • A Summer Teacher Institute!  During July, the Encyclopedia team together with our education consortium of civic partners, will offer “Philadelphia for Teachers,” a week-long institute for graduate credit.  In addition to an immersion in Philadelphia history, teachers will have the opportunity to research and write their own Encyclopedia-style essays, which may be considered for publication.  Click here for more information and registration.  Download a flyer for posting (PDF): Click here.

These opportunities are created by our education consortium, including the Historical Society of Pennsylvania, the Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent, the National Archives in Philadelphia, the National Constitution Center, and Independence National Historical Park.  Thank you very much!
