Description

Educator Workshop: Connecticut and World War I
Tuesday, October 10, 2017, 4-6pm. Fee: $15; Free for teachers in Bridgeport and Norwalk.

Marking the centennial of the United States’ involvement in World War I, take this opportunity to tour our newest exhibit and learn about valuable tools for teaching World War I from a Connecticut perspective. Beth Rose, the Fairfield Museum Library Director, will provide a guided tour of the exhibit, Uncle Sam Wants You: Fairfield in World War I, which focuses on how people in the Fairfield/Bridgeport region experienced the war. Rebecca Furer, Teach It Program Consultant with Connecticut Humanities, will discuss local and online resources available for teaching about Connecticut in World War I—both the home front and warfront experiences—and will model some of the primary source-based inquiry activities focusing on World War I that are available on teachitct.org. Rebecca Taber-Conover, State Coordinator for Connecticut History Day, will discuss the 2017/18 History Day theme, “Conflict and Compromise,” and how that pertains to the study of World War I and the use of local sources. Learn something new and walk away with ideas, tools, and resources that you can use right away in your classroom.

Recommended for grades 8-12.

Coffee and refreshments will be served.
