Enacting Equity, Inquiry, and Community in the Humanities

This summer Plymouth State University hosts an intensive summer institute for teachers in which they practice humanities skills: reading, listening, analysis, and discussion. They’ll develop integrated critical inquiry units around humanities content to help their students become more active, involved, and engaged. Content includes civil and civic discourse, inclusive history, and issues of race and culture, especially as they pertain to education. With support from New Hampshire Humanities, five afternoon programs offered as part of the Institute are open to the public, including teachers who are not enrolled in the full Institute. All programs will be held from 1:30-4:00 pm on the PSU campus and are free and open to the public. For detailed event information about the following programs, click HERE.
