This program traces the history of women, sexuality, and gender from the efforts to secure the right to vote to the efforts to name and end sexual harassment and assault. The program is a unique partnership with Teachers College, Columbia University and the New-York Historical Society. Unlike a traditional history course, this program aims to help teachers understand how they might incorporate the content knowledge that they gain in this program into their classrooms. In doing so, it connects historical content to classroom instruction and pedagogy. Moreover, the course leverages the rich archival sources—documents, materials, and films—and innovative curriculum from the New-York Historical Society’s Center for Women’s History.

Each week, participants will engage in content-based lectures, source analysis, and teacher inquiry. This program will help educators reflect on and refine their practice and will expand the perspectives and voices that their students engage with in their humanities classrooms. The program will be led by Dr. Erika M. Kitzmiller, Teachers College, Columbia University faculty member, and Dr. Nick Juravich, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation Postdoctoral Fellow in Women's History at the New-York Historical Society.

Registration Fee: $435 - Registration closes at 5:00 pm EST on march 1, 2019.
