Life on the Farm: Legacies of Dutch Colonial Brooklyn

Open to: All Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: Join the Center for Brooklyn History and Wyckoff House Museum to how to  use unique archival material to tell stories of colonial family life, slavery, and power, and the lasting legacies of colonial Brooklynites; the ones who our streets are named after and the ones whose stories are rarely told.   Educators will come away from the event with resources to create lesson plans and utilize primary source materials to bring the nuances of colonial history into the classroom and to supplement curriculum around local history.  Educators will also gain awareness of local cultural institutions that can support their students’ discovery of NYC.
Key dates:  Tuesday April 27th, 4:00 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.
Location: Online via Zoom
Registration deadline: 04/27/2021
