Join the Museum of the City of New York for a special Chancellor’s Day professional development for middle and high school educators on June 10 from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM focusing on the modern history of New York City.
Teaching New York City in the ‘60s and ‘70s: Political Challenges will focus on the Museum’s exhibition America’s Mayor: John V Lindsay and the Reinvention of New York as well as an examination of the landmark WGBH documentary Vietnam: a Television History (1983).
Dr. Margaret Crocco and Dr. William Gaudelli from Teachers College will provide participants with a unique opportunity to examine the use of recently digitized outtakes from the making of the film. Teachers will see how documentary and digital archives can support rich historical inquiry through a classroom-ready lesson about the Tet Offensive.
This event is $60.00 per participant. Educators will leave the workshop with classroom-ready lessons, online resources, and materials from the exhibition. A light breakfast will be served. To RSVP please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
