Teacher workshops taught by museum educators in your Virginia school or at our museums feature hands-on teaching pedagogy including historical analysis skills and the use of objects and primary sources. Options also include 17th- and 18th-century history content related to the settlement of Jamestown and the American Revolution.

Workshops are generally one to two hours in length, but customized programs are available. Museum staff will work with you to ensure that your workshop meets the professional development needs of your school or division.

Workshop participants will receive related teaching resources.

Workshops are correlated to Virginia Standards of Learning, National Standards for History, National Curriculum Standards for Social Studies and Common Core.
