Library and Archives Sponsored Workshops

For the 2017-2018 school year, the Library and Archives education team has selected World War I as the topic for our teacher workshop series. Focusing on the analysis of primary sources in classroom instruction, this workshop will explore the various ways Tennesseans participated in the war and how the war's development impacted Tennesseans, both at home and abroad. Topics include reasons for American entry into the war, doughboy experiences, the homefront and new technology.

This workshop meets the curriculum standards for World War I found in the fifth grade, high school American history and high school World history curriculum.

Licensed, classroom teacher participants receive lunch and a $25 stipend to assist with mileage and travel expenses. Workshop locations and dates are in the sidebar to the right.


To register for a workshop, please visit our website. If you would like to register, please follow the link below the city/date you wish to attend. Several spots are still open at each of the seven remaining workshops across the state. Please contact for questions.
