This is a three-day workshop that takes place on August 2, 3, and 4.

LGBTQ is a relatively modern acronym, but history is brimming with examples of individuals who participated in same-sex relationships or tested the boundaries of gender norms. This workshop will explore ideas about sexual orientation and gender identity through the lives of New Englanders. Our investigations will take us from the Puritan era through the twenty-first century, as well as to local repositories and historic sites. Participants will also work with primary sources and curricular materials that will help contextualize current debates over LGBTQ rights.

This program is open to all K-12 educators. Teachers can earn 45 PDPs or two graduate credits (for an additional fee).

For more information, or to register, contact the Center for the Teaching of History at MHS: education@masshist.org; 617-646-0557.

This is a three-day workshop that takes place on August 9, 10, and 11.

Experience food through historical accounts and field trips to local producers and providers! From the coffee, tea, and chocolate of the colonial era to the fusion cuisine of today, examinations of foodways can often reveal broader social, cultural, and political trends. We will taste our way through 400 years of American history while discussing ways to share this (mostly) delicious past with students. Offsite sessions will also provide us with opportunities to consider Boston’s contributions to American cuisine and dining habits.

This program is open to all K-12 educators. Teachers can earn 45 PDPs or two graduate credits (for an additional fee).
