Teacher Workshops

Consider The New Jersey Historical Society as a site for your next in-service training, or invite us to come to your school to lead a hands-on teachers’ workshop. NJHS workshops give teachers an introduction to the rich resources available in our Museum and Research Library, and an opportunity to explore the integration and use of primary sources in the classroom, discover links to curriculum standards, and practice strategies for engaging students in a multicultural, multi-dimensional, and multi-sensory look at New Jersey’s past. For more information, call the Education Department 973-596-8500.
