We offer week-long summer workshops for teachers and librarians in the school districts of Broome, Seneca, Tompkins and Tioga counties. Topics are developed in accordance New York State curriculum standards in U.S. History. Workshops take place on the Binghamton University campus; they are co-facilitated by Binghamton University faculty and experienced social studies teachers. We have held workshops in the summers of 2002-2006, and will offer another in July 2007, "War as a Turning Point: American Conflicts at Home and Abroad".
  • Each workshop has space for twenty participants
  • Teachers and librarians are nominated for participation by their individual districts
  • Participants receive stipends from their districts to attend the week-long program
  • A buffet lunch is provided each day
  • Resource materials are provided for participants

After the completion of the workshop, each participant prepares an individual teaching unit to be tested during the following academic year and presented to a formal Peer Review conference the following spring. The strongest individual projects will be published on this wesbsite for use by other teachers and librarians.

Teachers in area schools who are interested in enrolling in the summer workshop or in being added to a mailing list regarding future program activities should contact the project coordinator, Ms. Allyn Van Deusen, either by email or by phone at (607) 777-6769. We will maintain a listing of interested librarians and teachers should any openings develop for the upcoming workshops.
