Christopher Newport University: Center for American Studies 2020 Summer Teacher Webinar Series
The Center for American Studies has suspended its onsite teacher workshop program for 2020. In the meantime, the Center is sponsoring a series of webinars in July 2020 and invites all teachers to join. The programs are free.
Dr. Bill White, visiting scholar at the CNU Center for American Studies will be the moderator. India Meissel, History Department of Lakeland High School in Suffolk, Virginia and Past President of the National Council for the Social Studies, will provide a classroom application discussion during each session.
Each session will last between 60 and 90 minutes and include an opportunity for participants to ask questions of the speakers and discuss content and application for all grade levels – elementary through secondary.
