WGBY Educator Workshop: “Teaching Prohibition and Its Compelling Themes”

“Teaching Prohibition and Its Compelling Themes”

When: February 8th, 2012

Where: Springfield Museums, Springfield, MA

This professional development for educators is inspired by Ken Burns’ and Lynn Novick’s recent PBS documentary, Prohibition, and will provide rich resources that reach beyond this transformational era including the latest from PBS digital media.  WGBY is partnering with the Wood Museum of Springfield History on a day filled with workshop/presentations, teacher collaboration and tours of the Wood Museum/archives and the D’Amour Museum of Fine Art.  (We’ve even arranged for a sneak peak of the exciting new exhibit Old Masters to Monet:  Three Centuries of French Painting from the Wadsworth Atheneum.)  In addition to PDPs, light breakfast and lunch, and a binder of lessons/activities, teachers will be given the 3-part PBS series Prohibition.

Space will be limited so watch for an upcoming post or WGBY Educator E-newsletter with more about this unique experience free to teachers in our region.  If you’re interested, email Bess Kapetanis at bkapetanis@wgby.org.
