Historical Thinking, Research and Writing for Young Historians

Historical thinking, research, and writing skills are essential for older students in the study of history, but the foundation of these skills can be laid much earlier! Join Samantha Matalone Cook, MAT, for a workshop on tangible, fun ways to build knowledge, skills, and enthusiasm with young historians through the elementary years so that they not only engage with the subject of history, but are prepared for more complex work as they get older.
