Lessons from the Boston Massacre: Media Literacy in the 18th Century & Today
Saturday, February 29th 9:00AM-4PM
Registration fee: $25
Massachusetts Historical Society
In honor of the 250th anniversary of the infamous Boston Massacre, we will explore the events leading up to it and the conflict's aftermath, which played out both in the courts and in public opinion. Using a variety of primary sources, we will examine the public narratives about the Massacre that were created and disseminated and connect our discussion to 21st-century sites of protest and challenges to authority, both violent and non-violent.
This program is open to all who work with K-12 students. Teachers can earn 22.5 PDPs or 1 graduate credit with Worcester State University (for an additional fee).
