The AHA’s 2014 Annual Meeting: What’s In It for K-12 Teachers?
Teachers of all levels will find plenty to do at the AHA’s upcoming annual meeting, to be held in Washington, DC, from January 2-5. From sessions on the latest scholarship to discussions about pedagogy, and from networking events to hands-on workshops, AHA 2014 offers dozens of professional development opportunities for K-12 educators. With a registration fee of only $40 in advance ($45 at the door), and deeply discounted hotel rates, a weekend in DC with fellow historians is a great way to kick off the new semester.
We’ve compiled a list of offerings below that might be of interest to K-12 educators, but please visit our online program for a full list of events. We look forward to seeing you there!
