Professional Development Sessions

To support teachers’ use of The Right to Vote resource suite, the Gilder Lehrman Institute is hosting two free online professional development sessions featuring scholarly lectures and pedagogy sessions.

The two-hour sessions (which will be identical in content) will include a lecture by Professor Bertrall Ross (Justice Thurgood Marshall Distinguished Professor of Law and Director, Karsh Center for Law and Democracy, University of Virginia) and a pedagogy session with Patience LeBlanc (2017 Texas History Teacher of the Year). Teachers will receive a copy of “Taking a Stand for Voting Rights: Six Stories, Six States, One Goal,” our Teaching Civics through History unit created for The Right to Vote project, along with historical background essays and a four-part digital exhibition.

Sign up for one of the two online PD workshops in October:

Wednesday, October 11, 8:00 p.m.–10:00 p.m. ET

Saturday, October 14, 2:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m. ET
