FREE Full-day Educator Professional Development Workshop at Intrepid Museum Thursday, June 6th, 2013

The Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum and The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History are pleased to announce an upcoming professional development opportunity for educators.

Participants will explore the Cold War during a dynamic and thought provoking session held at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum, housed on the USS Intrepid aircraft carrier, which served from 1943 to 1974 and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1986. Today the Museum Complex includes the Intrepid, the space shuttle Enterprise, a collection of 27 World War II and Cold War era aircraft, a British Airways Concorde, the Cold War era submarine Growler, and a Soyuz TMA-6 spacecraft.

Workshop will include lectures by noted historians, tours of the Museum by curators and educators, resources and archival materials from both institutions, as well as a hands-on pedagogical workshop directed at integrating Common Core standards into primary sources led by Anthony Napoli, GLI's Director of Education. Teachers will be provided a packet of primary sources on the topic to be used in the classroom.

Conveniently offered on the June 6, 2013 in-service day for New York City teachers, this full-day workshop will offer insight and new materials for teachers to use in their classrooms and broaden understanding of these topics in American history. All participants will receive a workbook that includes texts and copies of archival materials as well as a letter of attendance to present to school administrators.
