Virtual Teacher Workshops

7 p.m. • January 19, February 16 & March 16

Join educators from the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation for free 90-minute online professional development opportunities for teachers as we take a deeper look into topics related to 17th-century Virginia and the American Revolution. Virginia teachers may receive recertification points for participation. Registration is required and connection information will be emailed the day prior to each program.

February 16: Active Learning and Performance-Based Assessments
Performance-based assessments provide teachers and students with the opportunity to be creative while enhancing understanding of historic events and developing skills in the 5 Cs. This year especially, many teachers are thinking of fun and educational projects they can assign to their students. Virtually join the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation at 7 p.m. on February 16 to explore ideas you can take to your classroom, either in person or virtually.


March 16: History, Science and Math, Oh My!
Contrary to popular belief, science and math can be found in history. In fact, these disciplines can help tell a more complete story of the past. Virtually join the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation at 7 p.m. on March 16 to explore how we incorporate topics outside of history into our programs and how you can take those same lessons into the classroom.


Registration is required and connection information will be emailed the day prior to each program. To register for a virtual teacher workshop, contact annemarie.baker@jyf.virginia.gov.

All virtual teacher workshop sessions are provided free to teachers thanks to a generous gift from the Charles S. & Millicent P. Brown Family Foundation.
