Teacher Workshop at MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History

Tuesday, June 18, 9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m.

 

In and out of uniform: Struggles and Triumphs of Women

Reading, Conceiving, and Writing across the Disciplines for the Classroom.

 

The workshop is free and includes lunch. Registered participants will receive 6 hours of professional development credit. Space is limited to 30 participants. The morning session will focus primarily on helping students learn to read and make use of a variety of texts in their writing. Our aim as teachers will be to improve our classroom practices so that we can improve our students’ performances while using material related to women.

The afternoon sessions will focus on the struggles and triumphs of women during and after World War I in the Women’s suffragist movement and will include a tour of the current temporary exhibit, “Imagery and Irony: The Fight for Women's Suffrage Through the Political Cartoons of Nina Allender."

Retired college educator and author, Dr. Pat Hoy will present the morning sessions and the afternoon sessions will be presented by Kathleen Pate, educator for the Clinton Presidential Library and Georganne Sisco, Education Director for the Old State House Museum.

All sessions will be held at MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History, 903 East 9th Street, Little Rock, AR, 72202. For more information please contact Shane Lind by email at alind@littlerock.gov or by telephone at 501-376-4602
