Summer Teacher Institute July 18-22

We invite educators to save the date to join MCHC and the University of Maryland Department of History for a week-long, in-person summer institute, July 18-22, 2022.

Participants will explore topics including the freedom, citizenship, and memory of African American Marylanders during the antebellum, Civil War, and Reconstruction periods, as well as the Jim Crow-era legal battles that continued into the early 20th century. Scholars from the University of Maryland Department of History will share their expertise and highlight the latest research Educators will also enjoy field trips, create resources to bring back to their classrooms, and have extensive access to MCHC primary source collections.

The Teacher Institute will be live and synchronous throughout the week, from 9:00 AM to 4:30 PM each day. Institute is FREE for all, and participants will receive 2 CPD credits from the Maryland State Department of Education upon completion of the course.
