For Teachers

For Teachers: Educational Resources from The New Jersey Historical Society

We are committed to providing positive educational experiences for our many diverse visitors. Education programs at the Historical Society stress the development of skills which students of all ages may transfer to other areas of their educational and personal lives. We place a premium on gallery teaching and the use of primary source material.


  • Encourage the development of positive attitudes toward museums and libraries as places for lifelong learning
  • Foster visitor's own personally significant experiences with New Jersey history and culture
  • Utilize a range of interactive approaches based on learning theory to engage visitors of all ages and developmental levels with artifacts and historic resources
