Two one-week workshops for 50 community college faculty members linking important themes in early American history to key sites in Philadelphia.

Philadelphia's cultural, historical, and educational resrouces offer an unmatched opportunity to meet NEH's mission for the Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for Community College Faculty. From its origins as William Penn's seventeenth-century "green country towne" and eighteenth-century rise to become the second-largest port in the British Empire to its transformation into a nineteenth-century industrial metropolis, the city's history encapsulates the American national narrative. The Society for Historians of the Early American Republic (SHEAR), a U.S. 501(c) 3 nonprofit headquartered in Philadelphia, requests funds to support two one-week summer workshops of forty to fifty participants each. These workshops will allow community college teachers to explore the city's rich history, learn how to incorporate historic landmarks into classroom learning, and initiate or advance their personal research interests.
