American Women, American Citizens: 1920-1948

A two-week institute for 30 teachers on women's history in the United States between 1920 and 1948.

This project comprises a two-week professional development institute for 30 school teachers and 13 scholars in the field of women's history in July 2020. This conference will empower teachers to incorporate the voices of a diverse range of women into their instruction on early-to-mid 20th century United States history through interactive pedagogy workshops, lesson writing support, and dialogue with leading scholars in the field. Participants will deepen their content knowledge of US history in the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, with an emphasis on women; practice incorporating primary sources and secondary texts into their instruction; and reflect on how women’s history can and should be woven into the broader history curriculum for middle and high school students. Participants will have full access to N-YHS's library and museum collections, as well as to the expertise of our education staff.
