Expanding the Ancient World is a series of professional development workshops and online resources for teachers. Keyed to the NYC Department of Education Social Studies Scope and Sequence, this program is designed to offer K-12 educators opportunities to develop their knowledge of the ancient world and to provide classroom-ready strategies for teaching the past with reliable sources. Featuring inquiry-based workshops, flexible lesson plans, and up-to-date research, Expanding the Ancient World aims to equip teachers with information and skills that they can share with their students. CTLE credits will be offered to New York State teachers.
Enjoy a tour of the exhibition Ritual and Memory: The Ancient Balkans and Beyond and learn about the beliefs, ritual practices, and intercultural connections in ancient civilizations in southeastern Europe from the Neolithic Era to the Iron Age. The presentation will also include a demonstration of inquiry-based techniques for teaching with artworks and artifacts. The tour will be followed by a small reception.
Participants will receive 1 CTLE hour.
Expanding the Ancient World is made possible by generous support from ISAW, the Society for Classical Studies, and the LuEsther T. Mertz Charitable Trust.
