Crafting History for Schools:
A range of expertise and decades of combined experience in the field of history education will be presented as a trio of educators talk about their views on educational programming. Workshop participants will learn how current programs were developed and are delivered, see examples of what has worked (and what has not), and hear about sources of funding. Examples of the tools, materials, and resources used by each educator, for outreach and onsite school programs, will be shared with the group.
