Common Ground: Americans and Their Land During the Gilded Age and Progressive Era

A two-week institute for 25 teachers to examine the Gilded Age and Progressive Era through a comparative place-based study of New York City and the Adirondacks.

“Common Ground” is a two-week Level II NEH Summer Institute for twenty-five middle and high school educators that examines how Americans understood the meaning of place, including those defined as “urban” and “wild,” in the years between the end of the Civil War to World War I, a period historians commonly refer to as the Gilded Age and Progressive Era. Our goal is to allow educators to develop teaching tools that are adaptable to their classroom while having them study Gilded Age and Progressive Era in ways not conveyed in traditional textbook accounts.
