Professional Development

The New Hampshire Historical Society offers several professional development opportunities to provide training in social studies methods as well as state history, civics, geography, and economics.

Summer 2021 Teacher Training Workshops
 

Two Topics—Civics and New Hampshire History—Offered in Two Formats (in-person or virtual)

 

Pick the format that works best for you, in-person or virtual! Please note that the virtual workshops are not videotaped sessions of the in-person workshops. Instead, the virtual workshops have been specifically redesigned to provide the best virtual experience.

 

Boot Camp Workshop: New Hampshire History Institute

Learn more about the state you love! The New Hampshire Historical Society presents the New Hampshire History Institute for upper elementary educators.
 
This boot camp in New Hampshire history will include sessions on the Abenaki, early colonial settlement, American Revolution, tourism, immigration, and civics; age-appropriate social studies and ELA methodology; and an introduction to "Moose on the Loose: Social Studies for Granite State Kids," the new state social studies curriculum for upper elementary grades created by the New Hampshire Historical Society. "Moose on the Loose" integrates high-quality social studies instruction with English language arts, math, and science requirements.
 
Attendees will receive a stipend of $125 and CEU credits for the three-day workshop. Participants of this workshop must be public or private school educators in New Hampshire. Please contact Katie Corbett at the New Hampshire Historical Society at kcorbett@nhhistory.org or (603) 856-0644 with questions or for additional information about this workshop.
