Our Panelists, Your Questions
Each of our document-based webinars consists of a conversation about critical questions between two scholars and a moderator. The live audience participates by posing questions through a chat function.
The discussion is rooted in a set of primary documents published on this site in advance of each program.
While designed for secondary school social studies teachers, Webinars are open to students and the public as well. There is no cost to participate, and all participants who attend at least 60 minutes of a 75-minute program, or 45 minutes of a 60-minute program will receive a letter documenting their contact hours.
Points to Remember:
- Webinars are free and you can participate as much or as little as you’d like. The chat window is open throughout each program, and most of the questions for the scholars are drawn from the audience.
- Everyone who attends a live webinar will automatically receive a downloadable, printable certificate for 2 hours of time, which takes into consideration preparation time to read the documents and the program itself. This will arrive about a week after each program’s live air date.
- Currently there is no way to provide continuing education certificates for watching or listening to the archive of a program – you must be present for the live airing.
- Everyone who registers for a webinar – whether they attend or not – will receive a link to the archived video and audio for each program. This email will arrive about a week after the live air date.
- You are free to use the archived programs and their related documents in any way you’d like: with students, coworkers, or any way you think you could put them to good use.
TAH will continue our Saturday Webinars during the 2021-22 school year, running from August through May. We will again split the year into two five-episode series. Our Fall 2021 Saturday Webinar series will be about “The President and Presidency in American Constitutional Government,” and our Spring 2022 series is titled “Populism and Progressivism.”
Saturday Webinars take place at 11am, generally on the first Saturday of each month.
Each session is a discussion of a single document – its historical context, use of language, meaning and impact; a close-read of a core document. TAH will continue Documents in Detail during the 2021-22 school year, running from August through May. For the 2021-22 school year each episode will focus on a single document from one of our Core Documents Volumes, selected by that volume’s editor.
Selected Wednesdays at 7PM EST.
All of our programs, with links to relevant documents and scholar biographies, are available through TAH.org’s YouTube channel and through our iTunes podcast.
