Institute for K-12 Educators: American Women, American Citizens: 1920-1948
The New-York Historical Society is delighted to announce its 2024 teacher institute, which will convene 30 teachers in grades K-12 and seven guest scholars to explore American women’s lived experiences in the 1920s, 30s, and 40s. This hybrid institute will combine synchronous virtual sessions with two exciting weeks at the New-York Historical Society in New York City.
American Women, American Citizens: 1920-1948 will engage participants in groundbreaking new scholarship, dialogue with leaders in the field, primary source research, and meaningful curriculum projects to examine the ways in which a diverse array of women redefined what it meant to be an American in the 1920s-1940s. This institute will include virtual and residential pieces with the goal of providing an immersive experience in New York City, followed by supports that will help participants bring the work back into the classroom. Stipend provided to defray the cost of participation. In-Person July 8-19, 2024. Virtual Sessions May 21-November 12, 2024 (see website for full details).
Applications are now open and will close on March 5 at 11:59 pm ET.
