Teaching American History: The American Revolution

Teaching American History: The American Revolution

On Saturday, September 28, celebrate the anniversary of the day Lancaster was Capital of the United States – September 27, 1777. Learn about the Revolutionary Era, and how to teach the time period to students, in our “The American Revolution” Teacher Seminar, hosted in partnership with TeachingAmericanHistory.org and taught by Dr. Rob McDonald.

Registration for the seminar begins at 8:30am on Saturday, September 28, 2019. The seminar will take place from 9am – 3pm. The seminar will discuss readings that address such issues as political developments in North America and the British empire and the arguments for and against independence, culminating in the Declaration of Independence; the Revolutionary War as a military, social and cultural event in the development of the American nation and state; and the United States under the articles of confederation.

The seminar is free and open to all educators but requires advance registration.
