CANCELED: Expanding the Ancient World Workshop

How to Look at Ancient Art

Organized by the Institute for the Study of the Ancient World

Due to unforeseen circumstances, this workshop has been canceled. We plan to reschedule for a later date, probably during fall 2024.

Expanding the Ancient World is a series of professional development workshops and online resources for teachers. Keyed to the NYC Department of Education Social Studies Scope and Sequence, this program is designed to offer K-12 educators opportunities to develop their knowledge of the ancient world and to provide classroom-ready strategies for teaching the past with reliable sources. Featuring inquiry-based workshops, flexible lesson plans, and up-to-date research, Expanding the Ancient World aims to equip teachers with information and skills that they can share with their students. CTLE credits will be offered to New York State teachers.

Workshop led by Annette Juliano (Research Associate, Institute for the Study of the Ancient World)

Participants will receive 1.5 CTLE hours.

Expanding the Ancient World is made possible by generous support from ISAW and an NYU Teaching Advancement Grant.
