A three-week summer institute for 30 school teachers on the role of women in the American Revolutionary War and the U.S. Civil War.

American Women at War will convene 30 schoolteachers, 15 renowned scholars, the vast treasures of the New-York Historical Society’s (N-YHS) collections, and the resources of our Center for Women’s History for a three-week summer Institute in 2019. Building on N-YHS’s successful 2017 NEH Institute of the same name, American Women at War will engage schoolteachers in primary source analysis, dialogue with leaders in the field, and meaningful curriculum projects to examine two critical wars in American history through the lens of women’s experiences and actions. As a result of the Institute, K-12 teachers will deepen their historical content knowledge; have the tools to incorporate primary sources into instructional practice, particularly as they relate to women’s history; broaden their understanding of how to present history fully and equitably, representing multiple perspectives; and develop their own library of primary and secondary source materials to enhance teaching.
