NEH Teacher's Workshop: Living and Writing Deliberately – Non-residential week
July 16-21, 2017
National Endowment for the Humanities Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for Teachers
This is a very special year to study Thoreau in his own hometown of Concord, Massachusetts: he was born here two hundred years ago on July 12, 1817.
Living and Writing Deliberately: The Concord Landscapes and Legacy of Henry Thoreau
The Concord Museum will host K-12 teachers from any discipline in this workshop that focuses on how Thoreau’s ideas were shaped by his experiences, observations, reflections, and discoveries in his own New England community. We believe that our investigation of, and immersion in, the historic landscapes of Thoreau’s Concord can bring an understanding of the man – his life and literature – that can only happen by being in those actual places.
