Children reading, 1940  




Programs wil include teacher study groups, summer institutes, visits to museums and historic sites, and the development of investigation kits and other classroom materials. Historians from CCSU and neighboring universities will meet regularly with teachers to discuss issues in the history curriculum, and museum educators will work with teachers on developing artifact kits and students investigations.

Our first workshop will be held on October 15, 2009, and our first summer institute will be held in June 2010.

American Voices will focus on topics in American history from the colonial era through the Civil War, using the theme of "Community, Conflict, and Compromise" to explore how different groups of Americans created communities and addressed conflict within and between them.
