March 25, 2014, 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

at the Mariposa Museum, 26 Main Street, Peterborough, NH.

Literature offers a powerful medium for journeying into the world of cultures. In this workshop, middle and high school teachers will learn dynamic, interactive strategies for opening up this rich world for students. Using excerpts from books and multimedia, teachers will experience these strategies directly as learners while also gaining insights into how to select and tailor materials for their classes and students. Take-away sample lessons and reading lists will be provided.

The workshop is free thanks to support from the NH Humanities Council. CEUs available. Among the social studies curriculum standards addressed are Geography 4, US/NH History 5 and World History 2.
