This workshop is open to educators for professional development purposes. Do you know an educator who might be interested? Please share this opportunity with them!

Primary sources are key to our understanding of historical events. Join members of the Museum’s education team as we explore six key documents that tell the story of an exceptional moment in history when women – and people of African descent – were able to vote in New Jersey, long before the passage of the 15th and 19th Amendments. Participants will analyze these primary sources and their historical contexts, walking away with ideas for how to integrate them into classroom learning.

Check back to our Professional Development Workshop page for future workshops digging into our newest exhibit, When Women Lost the Vote: A Revolutionary Story, 1776-1807.

Bank of America and Comcast NBCUniversal are presenting sponsors of When Women Lost the Vote, with additional support provided by the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development, National Society Daughters of the American Revolution, and a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities: Exploring the human endeavor.
