Long-Distance Interactive for K-12 Educators on Paul Revere

Wednesday, April 1, 2020 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm

Revere, His Networks, and the New Nation

Career advice today stresses the importance of networking and social media in establishing and advancing a career. But how did this work in the colonial and early national periods, when communication outlets were limited?

This workshop, part of a two-part series of long-distance K-12 professional development workshops based on the exhibition Beyond Midnight: Paul Revere, will explore how Revere successfully established networks of customers, fellow craftsmen, and members of both the elite and lower classes to create his business, while also advancing the aims of a new nation. Primary sources and objects that will be discussed include colonial- and Revolutionary-era portraits and engravings, silver artifacts, and manuscripts.
