17th Century Scholars
Are you a secondary or middle school teacher looking for local colonial and Native primary resources? Join us for our first-ever Summer Scholar Workshop focusing on the 17th century in New England. Pulling from recent ground-breaking research on the Pequot War, join Research Director Kevin McBride as the Pequot Museum offers new perspectives, primary resource materials, and fun hands-on historic programs which integrate math, science and art, linking to the Common Core curriculum themes. This one-day workshop includes:

  • Behind-the-scenes at a 17th century archaeological site and the Museum’s research labs
  • In-depth Museum exhibit tours
  • Visual arts hands-on program: View local monuments and art through a historic lens
  • STEM perspectives: Use historic documents, modern technology and science-based inquiries to tell history.

Participation in this program is limited and by application only. A stipend is offered to workshop participants in exchange for complete lesson plans and curriculum development based on workshop content and materials.
