For the 2013-2014 academic year, Ashbrook’s Saturday Webinars for Social Studies Teachers will focus on our list of 50 Core Documents. This essential collection of documents contains the ideas that explain what it means to be an American.
Each of our monthly webinars will be a conversation about several of these documents that highlight aspects of the American experience. A panel of scholars noted for their teaching and research on American history and government will discuss select documents with one another, and with participants. Participants will be able to raise questions for panelists to address.
While designed for secondary school social studies teachers, each Saturday Webinar is open to the public. There is no cost to participate. Participants will receive a letter documenting their contact hours and are eligible to earn graduate credit.
Each webinar is presented live and participants will have the opportunity to ask questions of the presenter. To access the WebEx Training Center classroom, participants need a computer with speakers and a microphone, a broadband internet connection, and a current web browser.
