American Women at War

A three-week institute for thirty schoolteachers on the experiences of American women in the American Revolution, the Civil War, and World War II.

American Women at War will convene 30 schoolteachers, 24 renowned scholars, the vast treasures of the New-York Historical Society’s collections, and the resources of our Center for the Study of Women’s History for a three-week summer institute in 2017. The Institute will engage schoolteachers in deep primary source research, dialogue with leaders in the field, and meaningful curriculum projects to examine three critical wars in American history through the lens of women. As a result of the Institute, teachers will deepen their historical content knowledge; have the tools to incorporate primary sources into instructional practice, particularly as they relate to women’s history; broaden their understanding of how to present history fully and equitably, representing multiple perspectives; and develop their own library of primary and secondary source materials to enhance and enrich their classroom strategies.
