Workshops for K-12 Educators

"Media and Visual Culture: Politics, Influence, and Technology"

Wednesday, March 10, 2021, 5 p.m. EST

Presented by the American Antiquarian Society; the Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens; the American Revolution Institute of the Society of the Cincinnati; and the National Portrait Gallery – Smithsonian Institutions.


Join four national institutions for a professional development workshop that will explore the importance of visual and material culture in historical contexts, as well as what role technology has played in the distribution of that culture. Participants will examine primary sources covering 200 years, from the American Revolution through the twentieth century, and discuss how to use them in a digital learning environment.

This session is the fourth in a professional development series for K-12 educators series titled “Teaching History While Living History,” brought to you by fourteen of the nation’s top Cultural Organizations Dedicated to Educators (C.O.D.E.). Running from January to March 2021, each of the four sessions delves into topics and teaching strategies that illuminate connections between our past and present for your classroom.

Information and registration for all of these sessions can be found here.
