Mystic Seaport Hosts Free Professional Development

Next session, it's all hands on deck; teachers will make a Connecticut product

Mystic Seaport offers a series of free monthly professional development sessions for teachers. Next up is Connecticut's Unsung Heroes—Nov. 16 from 4 to 6 PM—for teachers in grades 2-8.

Aligned with Connecticut's Social Studies Frameworks and tailored to the town where you teach, the program uses hands-on activities to introduce students to their hometown history; notable individuals, inventions, and other claims to fame; and reasons the town developed the way it did over time. Teachers will make one of Connecticut's popular products as well as have a local geography lesson, 19th-century style.

The program and meal are free, but space is limited.
