Chancellor’s Conference Day – The Civil War and the Common Core

Open Enrollment Teacher Workshop
From: 8:30 AM - 4:30 PM
$ 35.00

“Nearly a century and a half after its conclusion, the Civil War remains the central event in American history,” asserts historian Eric Foner in the introduction to Harold Holzer and the N-YHS’s 2013 book, The Civil War in 50 Objects. Tie this important historical content with the strategies and rigor the Common Core demands in this full-day professional development session. Participants will explore the N-YHS exhibition Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the American Civil War, interpret artifacts featured in The Civil War in 50 Objects, and learn Common Core-aligned strategies that can be brought directly in to the classroom.
