The course consists of a series of six modules. In each module, a series of activities will allow the participants to engage in the historical inquiry process, and provide opportunities to examine how the course content can be applied in the classroom. Each module will require teachers to write reflections about the objects and the historical content and to respond to the postings from the other class participants.
Primarily Virginia’s online format has been designed for asynchronous work, allowing K-12 teachers from around Virginia to access the resources of the VHS and the Library of Congress from their homes and schools. Upon completion of the course, participating teachers will receive up to 45 re-certification points, along with a membership to the Virginia Historical Society.
The course is offered free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the MeadWestvaco Corporation and the MeadWestvaco Foundation.
Primarily Virginia is limited to 30 students and will launch on January 22, 2018. Please register by January 20, 2018. For additional information, please contact Hailey House, 804-342-9689, firstname.lastname@example.org.
