Description: As educators balance curricular requirements with students’ needs to effectively analyze the social landscape around them, civics education and the study of cultural history are more important than ever.  The Maryland Historical Society has a rich tradition of engaging with K-12 audiences, using our archival and museum collections to examine often difficult topics in American history. Therefore, we invite educators to join MdHS and the University of Maryland, Department of History for a week-long summer institute:

“Slavery, Freedom and Memory in Maryland”

Participants will explore topics including the freedom, citizenship, and memory of African American Marylanders during the antebellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction periods, as well as the Jim Crow-era legal battlse that continued into the early 20th century. Scholars from the University of Maryland, Department of History will share their expertise and highlight the latest research. Educators will also enjoy field trips, create resources to bring back to their classrooms, and have extensive access to MdHS primary source collections.


Continuing Education credits will be applied for participating teachers:  

2 Continuing Education credits from MSDE
2 Achievement Unit Credits from Baltimore City Schools

Applications for the Summer Teacher Institute 2019 are now closed. Applicants will be informed of their status on Monday, April 8, 2019.
