Flagler College
St. Augustine, Florida

Registration has closed for this event.

Teachers attending this unique weekend colloquium in St. Augustine will learn about the extraordinary richness of Florida’s colonial past and will use technology and innovation for unparalleled access into the lives of the region’s Native American, African, and European inhabitants. An NCHE team including a historian and education specialist will model strategies for using primary sources to engage students, build historical thinking skills, and construct knowledge. Explore the streets of St. Augustine, founded in 1565, the oldest continuously occupied European settlement in the continental United States and learn to use resources from the Library of Congress in your classroom. Participants will examine newly digitized primary sources as we work together to uncover the many lost voices of early American history.  Teachers receive a $500 stipend and a one-year membership in the National Council for History Education. Continental breakfast and lunch will be provided. This colloquium is available thanks to a grant from the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources program.
