Civic institute to host teacher workshop

UIndy’s Institute for Civic Leadership & Mayoral Archives is offering a free workshop July 13 and 14 to help Indiana high school teachers make use of local history archives in the classroom.

The intensive workshop will explore strategies for tying local history to national themes using primary sources, such as materials in the Mayoral Archives relating to the civil rights movement in Indianapolis, the development of the city and the Unigov reforms of the 1960s and 1970s. The sessions will be led by Associate Professor of History Edward Frantz, director of the institute, and Leah Nahmias, director of programs for Indiana Humanities.

The content is ideal for social studies instruction at the 11th and 12th grade level. Each participant who completes the two-day workshop will receive 14 hours of continuing education credits and a $100 stipend.
