Join us on Tuesday, September 20, 2022 from 7:00pm to 8:30pm (EST) for a virtual professional development. The event is hosted by The Hard History Project who partnered with Salem Maritime and local teachers to co-develop materials to teach "hard history."

Who and what is the webinar for?

The webinar will highlight new digital resources for teachers and students on the history of slavery and freedom in Salem, Massachusetts. Teachers of grades 3-8 will find this most useful as those are the grades the materials were developed for.

How do I particpate?

Register here in advance for this free event. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting.

What will I learn?

Hear directly from staff and teachers about the co-created materials and lessons, how students responded, and how others might use them in their classrooms. Short presentations will be followed by a question-and-answer period.

Do I need to prepare?

You do not need to prepare, but for a preview, visit Salem Maritime's "Education" webpage and view our new film (located at the top of the page), "Understanding and Teaching Hard History." 


Please send us an email.

This program was made possible by a grant from the National Park Foundation through the generous support of Union Pacific Railroad and donors across the country.
