Saturday Webinars

About the Series

Teaching American History’s Saturday webinar series brings together thoughtful scholars with differing points of view to discuss historically important issues that still resonate in the current classroom.

Each webinar:

  • Lasts 75 minutes.
  • Is based in a primary source reading packet which will be provided prior to the webinar.
  • Gives audience members chances to ask questions of the panelists, either before or during the webinar.
  • Provides attendees a list of materials referenced during the conversation.

Attendees who remain digitally present for the duration of the webinar will receive a letter certifying their attendance.
