Investigating the Civil War 2.0: Summer Institute
The Civil War is a crucial episode in American history. One hundred and fifty years later,
the war still surrounds us. It is hiding in plain sight across the Upper Valley in cemeteries,
villages, parks, public art, and historic sites.
Join scholars and staff from the region’s museums to explore the Civil War in an exciting
5-day place-based teacher institute. Each day features scholarly presentations, primary
source investigations, and place-based workshops that will help you tie local Civil War
stories to the Vermont and New Hampshire frameworks and key themes of American
history. Sessions also include new technologies that support student inquiry: Google docs,
Google maps, GPS, QR codes and other 2.0 web tools.
