Free Online Professional Development

Webinars are free for all participants!

Using your questions as a guide, our webinar panelists discuss the historical significance of primary documents, pointing to key passages and providing insight into issues that continue to challenge students, educators and citizens.

A Schedule for Busy Educators

Your time is precious.

We offer webinars on Wednesday evenings and Saturday mornings.  All programs last between 1 and 1.25 hours.

Assigned readings are available to registrants several months in advance.  Readings can be completed in less than half an hour. For professional development purposes, attendees will receive acknowledgement of their digital presence.

"The webinars allow me to receive continued educational support for myself when I’m not able to make it to TAH seminars."

Our Panelists, Your Questions

You know the questions your students have.

Our three panelists are subject-matter specialists - and educators themselves. They start the discussion. Your questions direct the conversation.

"TAH webinars provide vast amounts of content knowledge, and primary sources that I use regularly in my classroom."
