What creates a neighborhood? Why do they change over time? Explore these questions while learning about some of the neighborhoods of Philadelphia and the diversity of people who have lived and worked in the City. This teacher workshop program will include an opportunity to get up close with rarely exhibited artifacts and documents. Teachers will leave with a CD of materials to help them adapt the methodology to their own neighborhoods.
Free workshop for 2.5 hours Act 48 credit.
