Women’s Suffrage Teacher Workshop


Join us on Thursday, March 15, 2018 for a one-day women’s suffrage teacher workshop.

This free workshop is offered by the staff of the New York State Museum at the Cultural Education Center in Albany, NY. The workshop is designed to aid educators in teaching the history of the women’s suffrage movement in New York State.

With hands-on learning opportunities, presentations, guided tours, and break out discussions, participants will learn about the struggle for women’s rights through the exhibition Votes for Women: Celebrating New York’s Suffrage Centennial at the State Museum and learn how to apply that knowledge in the classroom. Participants will also develop an understanding of the educational resources available at the Cultural Education Center (CEC), including at the State Museum, State Library, and State Archives. Participants will expand on the information and tools given to them throughout the workshop during brainstorming and development sessions where they can gain CEC staff insight as well as fellow educators’ opinions. 

*Note: The New York State Museum is an approved provider of Continuing Teacher and Leader Education (CTLE). If you are employed in a New York State school, your employing district approves all professional development activities to accrue towards your continuing professional development requirement. 

Registration has been extended through March 14. The number of participants is limited to 30.
Teacher CTLE Credit: 7.5 CTLE hours
