Webinars for Teachers and Students

ResourceDescription
New York Historical Society Webinars for StudentsNew-York Historical Society’s Homeschool Academy provides hands-on history workshops designed to supplement your lessons. Students from ages 5–17 visit our galleries, classrooms, and studio spaces to learn US History from artifacts, works of art, and primary sources that illustrate the events from the 17th through the 20th century. Student participants will engage in investigative processes, art-making, close reading, and creative writing activities that develop their content knowledge and historical thinking skills. Classes visit the permanent collections and special exhibitions regularly, making the museum their home away from home.
Constitution Center Webinars for StudentsThe National Constitution Center is here to support remote learning with free lectures and civil dialogue sessions on the Constitution that students across America can access online, and accessible on a home computer, laptop, or phone. Join us as we expand the Classroom Exchanges to go well beyond the traditional classroom to connect students to constitutional scholars and each other for thoughtful civil dialogue around constitutional issues that matter to them.
Bill of Rights InstituteDiscover engaging approaches for students to think, engage, and contribute. BRI will provide the tools students need to learn about current events and understand history.
Teaching American HistoryEach of our document-based webinars consists of a conversation about critical questions between two scholars and a moderator. The live audience participates by posing questions through a chat function.

The discussion is rooted in a set of primary documents published on this site in advance of each program.

While designed for secondary school social studies teachers, Webinars are open to students and the public as well. There is no cost to participate, and all participants who attend at least 60 minutes of a 75-minute program, or 45 minutes of a 60-minute program will receive a letter documenting their contact hours.

These webinars will be held weekly on Thursdays at 3:00pm ET beginning this coming Thursday, March 26.
