Teaching with Primary Sources–MTSU kicks off its busy summer professional development schedule with the second annual “Teaching History Today: Content and Strategies for U.S. and World History” mini-conference on June 4th at the McWherter Learning Resource Center on the MTSU campus. The MTSU History Department is collaborating with TPS-MTSU to offer four content sessions by MTSU History Department faculty: Dr. Mary Evins, Dr. Yuan-ling Chao, Dr. Sean Foley, and Dr. Susan Myers-Shirk. The day will also feature strategy and resource sessions by Dr. Andrew Polk (MTSU History Department), Sarah Calise and Donna Baker (Albert Gore Research Center), and our TPS-MTSU staff. The MTSU Center for Educational Media will be recording the day’s sessions for inclusion in their online programming.
The inaugural “Teaching History Today” professional development mini-conference in 2017 reached teachers from across middle Tennessee and included lecturers such as MTSU’s Dr. Amy Sayward, shown here. This year’s “Teaching History Today” will build on last year’s event and bring in new lecturers and partners.
