New Hampshire Museum Education Summit
Spend time with your colleagues from other New Hampshire museum education programs learning about and discussing the state’s shifting educational landscape. How can Granite State museums and cultural organizations help schools provide better social studies education? What is the state of social studies in New Hampshire schools today? What do schools really want from their field trips and classroom programs? And how does the divisive concepts law and the increasing polarization of our society impact the educational programs your museum delivers? We’ll also share our new free, online state social studies curriculum, "Moose on the Loose," and explain how it can be a springboard for the development of education programs for museums around the state. This one-day summit has been organized by the New Hampshire Historical Society. It will be held at the Society’s headquarters in Concord and is offered at no cost, although attendance is limited to museum professionals in New Hampshire. Lunch will be provided. The Society thanks the New England Museum Association and New Hampshire Humanities for their support. Advanced registration is required by June 17. Register through Eventbrite.

Teacher Workshop: Introduction to the “Moose on the Loose”
Get a crash course on the new state social studies curriculum, "Moose on the Loose: Social Studies for Granite State Kids," which is being adopted by schools all over the state. Developed by the New Hampshire Historical Society for upper elementary students and educators, this curriculum provides everything you’ll need to introduce your students to state history, civics, geography, and economics. The “Moose” includes lesson plans, explainer videos, inquiry resources, curated primary source sets, and fun, easy ways to work with primary and secondary sources. And it’s all available free of charge on an open-access site. "Moose on the Loose" integrates high-quality social studies instruction with English language arts, math, and science requirements. Attendees will receive a stipend of $25 and CEU credits. Please note: participants must be public or private school educators in New Hampshire. Advance registration is required. Register through Eventbrite for the in-person workshop or the virtual workshop. Contact Katie Corbett at firstname.lastname@example.org or 603-856-0644 with questions or to register by phone.
