Northwestern to host summer workshop for teachers on American Revolution, early republic

January 25, 2016

Applications are now being accepted for the 2016 Teacher’s Workshop on the American Revolution and the Early American Republic scheduled June 6-9 at Northwestern Oklahoma State University in Alva.

The workshop will cover the period from George III's accession to the British throne in 1760 to Thomas Jefferson's transformational presidential victory in 1801 and should provide relevant content to all interested teachers.

Due to budgetary constraints, the workshop will only be available to 20 attendees. Each attendee will receive a $50 stipend to defray travel expenses. Those interested should complete and return applications by email to Dr. Aaron Mason, associate professor of political science, at mason@nwosu.edu or through regular mail no later than Friday, April 15.

Applications for admission to the workshop can be found at www.nwosu.edu/nwics.

Those attendees who choose to lodge on campus will have all meals and lodging provided at no cost.

“Some of you might recall that in summer 2012 we held a similar Teachers’ Workshop on the American Civil War,” Mason said. “It was an unquestionable success, and we look forward to hosting a similar effort in summer 2016. Understanding that summer break is important to you, we would appreciate if you would consider continuing your education by joining us for this excellent learning opportunity.”

Any questions should be directed to Mason at (580) 327-8522 or Dr. Eric Schmaltz, professor of history, at (580) 327-8526.

This event is sponsored by a generous grant provided by the Oklahoma Humanities Council and in part by the Northwestern Social Sciences Department and the Northwestern Institute for Citizenship Studies.
