Teachers explore history during summer instituteWritten by Admin
“Ideas that Changed the World” will be the focus of the second-annual Explorations in History Summer Institute, a five-day program for teachers that will be held in June at Western Carolina University.
This year’s institute will assist teachers in investigating ways to teach world history and world literature in middle grade and secondary classrooms, with activities each day including seminars, hands-on activities and the use of primary documents. The institute will be held Monday, June 20, through Friday, June 24, with a different topic and speaker featured each day.
The program is designed for teachers of history, social science and literature, but it would also be relevant for other teachers and individuals interested in learning more about world history and literature.
