Hello! A few spaces are available in the Boston Athenæum's summer workshop, "Primary Sources in the Classroom: Abolition and the Underground Railroad."
Spend July 13-16 with us in landmark (and air conditioned!) reading rooms, exploring the library's special collections. You'll work with the unique Harriet Hayden Albums of Black anti-slavery activists in Boston, meet colleagues, and identify resources for your own use.
The workshop is valuable for and open to educators of all grade levels, pre-service teachers, homeschool educators, librarians, and museum educators.
The Boston Athenæum, a nonprofit library and cultural center, is located at 10-1/2 Beacon Street, near the Boston Common and the Park Street T station. All sessions will be in person except for the virtual keynote lecture.
The $100 registration fee includes
- access to all workshop sessions
- Dr. Kellie Carter Jackson's keynote lecture
- in-person explorations of the Athenaeum's special collections, including the Harriet Hayden Albums
- two lunches
- a one-year individual membership to the BA including electronic resource access and our book mailing service
