Saturday Webinars

American Presidents

Explore Critical Questions through America’s 50 Core Documents

American Presidents and the challenges they faced will be the focus of TeachingAmericanHistory.org’s Saturday Webinars for Social Studies Teachers for the 2015-2016 academic year. Drawing from our list of 50 Core Documents, and exploring related sources, TAH.org’s American Presidents webinar series is designed to give teachers a deeper understanding of the issues – domestic and foreign – that each of 10 presidents faced, and how those men handled the challenges of their times.

Each of our monthly webinars consists of a conversation about these critical questions among a panel of scholars noted for their teaching and research on American history and government. Professor Chris Burkett, of Ashland University, will moderate a group of panelists who will discuss select documents with one another, with participants able to raise questions for panelists to address.

Webinars are all held on Saturday mornings, and will begin at 11:00 AM (Eastern). Each webinar is scheduled to last one hour and fifteen minutes.

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.

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.
