Virtual Teacher Workshops

Virtual WorkshopsJoin educators from the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation for free 90-minute online professional development opportunities for teachers. Virginia educators may receive recertification points for participation.

Workshop topics can include an exploration of West Central African culture and the beginnings of the slave trade, women and the American Revolution, propaganda and the decisions individuals made during the American Revolution, and more.

Sessions begin with a focus on historic content, providing information to incorporate into lessons and background information to enhance understanding of historic topics, and conclude with a discussion of strategies for classroom presentations.
