Women’s History and Suffrage Centennial Celebration Summer Educators Institute
The National Women’s History Museum, in accordance with its mission to educate, inspire, empower, shape the future, and provide a complete view of American history, is pleased to offer a summer institute specifically for K-12 educators in celebration of the centennial anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment.
The one-day intensive workshop, with half-day and full-day excursion offerings planned for both before and after the workshop, is hosted in collaboration with the George Washington University Museum and numerous like-missioned partners.
The main day workshop will feature inspiring speakers, peer-to-peer networking opportunities, and break-out sessions with practical resources that support classroom teaching and learning on topics related to the history of woman suffrage, women’s history in the U.S., and ways to use primary sources in creative and dynamic ways to encourage further student research and civic engagement.
Pre- and post-excursion offerings provide opportunities to explore sites relevant to women’s history and women’s commemorations in and around the Washington, D.C., metro area.
Join us Saturday, July 25th 2020, for the main day workshop, or extend your stay for more adventures in the nation’s capital with affordable 3-day housing available on The George Washington University’s Foggy Bottom campus, conveniently located in northwest Washington, D.C.
Final program, online registration, and affordable housing information will be made available March 2nd 2020. Seating is limited! Please bookmark this page for easy return navigation.
Due to a generous grant from The Charles H. Stout Foundation, the NWHM 2020 Summer Educators Institute is offered at no cost to K-12 public school educators; all other participants are warmly welcomed at a reduced rate of $75 per a person. Each participant will be issued a Certificate of Attendance following the conclusion of the workshop as proof of active engagement and attendance.
