Mapping a New World: Places of Conflict and Colonization in 17th-Century New England

Two one-week workshops for 72 school teachers on cultural interactions and conflict in seventeenth-century New England.

The Norman B. Leventhal Map & Education Center at the Boston Public Library proposes a 2020 Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for teachers focused on the early colonial period in New England (1600-1700), with an emphasis on the role of geography and place. This workshop is designed to immerse 3rd–12th grade teachers in the history and landscape of 1600s New England. This workshop was previously funded in 2017. Participants will engage deeply with the region by visiting and learning at major historical landmarks such as the site of the Plymouth colony, the city of Boston and museums and libraries that together house collections and exhibitions that bring to life this complex story of land, power, identity and community. Teachers will be learning from scholars and with primary source materials, such as period maps, letters, land deeds and narratives that are grounded in their geographic location.
