Each year the Colonial Society sponsors an annual workshop in early American history for teachers in eastern Massachusetts and adjoining states. The workshop is designed to keep teachers abreast with the latest scholarship. Speakers, generally drawn from the Colonial Society's own membership, engage teachers in a discussion of new research and may make suggestions about reading or primary sources. We assume that teachers themselves are the experts best equipped to adapt this information for their own students, so neither lesson plans nor curricula are the focus of these discussions. The workshops are held at the Society's headquarters at 87 Mount Vernon Street on Beacon Hill, and teachers are guests of the society for a light luncheon. Over the years, we have developed a rich mix of teachers from public, private, and parochial schools around Boston, including both elementary and secondary school teachers, all of whom meet on equal and friendly terms with our presenters. If you would like to be included on the mailing list for future workshops, please email the following registration form.
