The thirty-fourth MDAH Social Studies Teachers Workshop will be held from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Friday, November 1, at the Two Mississippi Museums—the Museum of Mississippi History and Mississippi Civil Rights Museum.

This year’s workshop will feature a presentation from the staff of George Washington’s Mount Vernon and a tour of significant civil rights sites in Jackson led by Robby Luckett, director of the Margaret Walker Center at Jackson State University.

“Last year, when we relaunched the teachers workshop, it was a great success,” said MDAH education director Al Wheat. “This year, our goal is to continue to provide great opportunities for our educators while striving to shine a light on topics and content that weren't featured last year. We're going to roll out the red carpet for educators like we always do and can't wait to see everyone in November."

The cost is $60 in advance and $80 the day of. Included is lunch and admission to the Two Mississippi Museums. The first 100 applicants will receive a $30 scholarship funded by George Washington’s Mount Vernon to go towards their registration fee. Earn 0.7 Continuing Education Units (CEU) for an additional fee. Register online here. For more information email outreachprograms@mdah.ms.gov or call 601-576-6997.

The Social Studies Teachers Workshop is sponsored by Mississippi Department of Archives and History in conjunction with the Mississippi College School of Continuing Education, Mississippi Department of Education, and Mississippi Historical Society.
