Women and Colonization: Early Encounters in the American Colonies

A two-week institute for 30 K-12 teachers on the history of women in colonial America.

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 2021. This Institute will empower teachers to incorporate the voices of a diverse range of women into their instruction on colonial American history through interactive pedagogy workshops, lesson writing support, and dialogue with leading scholars in the field. Participants will deepen their content knowledge of the colonial period, 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.
