NEH Teacher Institute
Pedagogy leader for a three-week, residential, summer institute for teachers to study the topic of Abolitionism and the Underground Railroad in North America from the colonial era through the Civil War. Supported teachers to translate recent historical scholarship, field trips to key anti-slavery sites, and primary source documents into school-based curriculum.
These projects with Philipsburg Manor, a historic site in New York's Hudson Valley, reflect the range of my work as a curriculum designer, multimedia producer, and workshop facilitator for teachers and professionals.
"During the colonial period, runaway slave advertisements were published in nearly every newspaper. These primary documents indicate the size and scope of colonial enslavement in the North and provide evidence of ongoing, active resistance by enslaved individuals against the institution that bound them."
