Opportunities for teachers to learn how to teach with maps, geography, and history
“Maps to me are now dynamic, vibrant, alive and worth engaging” –Teacher Workshop Participant
The Leventhal Map & Education Center offers a variety of professional development opportunities for educators. From one-day workshops to summer-long fellowships, Map Center professional development is designed to support educators in using geographic approaches and materials in various subject areas and for various purposes.
No workshops are currently scheduled.
See a list of past workshops here, with links to workshop materials.
The summer teacher fellowship is open to any K-12 teacher or library media specialist and has a different focus each year. Fellows work with Map Center educators and librarians to research in our collections, create curriculum and learn from one another. Boston Public School teachers are especially encouraged to apply. The application process opens up in February. Please join our education mailing list to receive updates.
