Join the Georgia Historical Society in a free, one-day, in-person professional development opportunity for teaching challenging histories.
About this event
The Georgia Historical Society (GHS) hosts a free, full-day, in-person professional development program for K-12 Georgia teachers at the newly renovated GHS Research Center in Savannah, Georgia.
Educators will be introduced to classroom strategies for having constructive conversations discussing difficult historical topics such as slavery, Jim Crow, racial violence, and the Civil Rights Movement, and will also become better equipped at addressing the many challenging questions that arise when studying Georgia and American history in their classrooms.
Participants will engage in hands-on primary source analysis with materials from GHS collections, learn from members of the GHS staff to better understand Georgia’s rich but complicated history, and attain a fuller picture of our state and national histories to better shape student understanding of the present.
