In the 1800s Philadelphia became an industrial powerhouse. Learn more about its industries and the people who worked in them and consider new ways to introduce the topics to students. The program will include an opportunity to get up close with rarely exhibited artifacts and documents from consortia partnering organizations and to discuss with peers creative and relevant means of including industrialization in your curriculum.
Building upon the Phrasing Philadelphia Roundtable series, the workshop is sponsored by The Encyclopedia of Greater Philadelphia in partnership with the Historical Society of Pennsylvania and colleague institutions the Philadelphia History Museum at the Atwater Kent, National Constitution Center, National Archives at Philadelphia, and Independence National Historical Park. The workshop is open to teachers and pre-service students; three credits of ACT 48 will be provided. Workshop participants also will receive a CD with a bibliography, images of documents and artifacts used in the workshop, and links to related resources. Workshop is free but limited to 40 participants. Light refreshments will be served.
