Teacher Programs at the USS Midway Museum

On January 4, 2022

Teaching American History and the USS Midway Museum will continue our partnership for California teachers during the Spring semester of 2022. Two One-Day Seminars are scheduled.

About Teacher Programs

Open to any teacher – public, private, parochial, or homeschool – these free programs invite teachers into a day-long series of Socratic discussions based around a collection of primary source documents. Our discussion leaders, chosen from our graduate faculty for their expertise in each program’s topic, assemble the readings for each program. Attendees at these seminars receive the reader in PDF and print format ahead of the program date. Attendees also receive lunch, a certificate for continuing education, free parking near the museum, and free access to the museum.

Topic: African Americans After World War 1

Teacher Programs

Our first One Day Seminar for this semester aboard the Midway will take place on February 11 and focus on African Americans After World War 1. Often overlooked in studies of the civil rights movement, this era saw African Americans contesting discrimination in jobs and housing. The document reader will cover this along with the striking cultural accomplishments of African Americans during the era. Participants will discuss many documents rarely found in traditional textbooks. Dr. Jennifer Keene of Chapman University will serve as Discussion Leader. Click here to register.

Topic: World War 2 in the Pacific

Our second One Day Seminar on the Midway will take place on April 22, and will feature a deep-dive into World War 2 in the Pacific, beginning before Pearl Harbor and continuing through the war’s key turning points. It will cover the military, political, and cultural experience of America at war. Dr. John Moser will serve as Discussion Leader. Click here to register.
