Join Mount Vernon’s Manager of Teacher Learning, Alissa Oginsky, as we explore George Washington’s complicated legacies as related to slavery through the use of primary sources and digital classroom resources. Teachers participating in this free workshop will examine his public and private decision making during the Revolutionary and Founding eras and the complex lives and agency of individuals enslaved at Mount Vernon to more fully understand the past and connect it to the present day. 

Register for this free workshop. Check back for future professional development workshops. 

This workshop is presented in partnership with George Washington's Mount Vernon.
