Inventing America: Lowell and the Industrial Revolution
The Tsongas Industrial History Center invites educators from across the U.S. to Lowell, Massachusetts, to apply to take part in one of three sessions of a week-long workshop in Lowell next summer, Inventing America: Lowell and the Industrial Revolution, funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities.
The Inventing America workshops combine scholarly presentations with on-site investigations of the canals, mills, worker housing, and exhibits of Lowell National Historical Park. In addition to Lowell’s landmark resources, we will use drama, historical fiction, hands-on simulations, and field studies at Old Sturbridge Village, Walden Pond, and Concord, MA, museums to bring history to life.
