Body

Since John F. Kennedy, most Presidents have had an official photographer, resulting in a wealth of primary source material. But what can students of all ages learn by taking a deeper look, past the subject matter and into the backgrounds and material culture represented in these photos, to learn more about how the lives of our leaders are presented? Join the Gerald R. Ford Presidential Library and Museum for this online teacher workshop and discover resources for teaching with presidential photographs. This workshop is suitable for middle and high school educators.

Registration is free, and the program will be held via Zoom. You will receive the connection information via email the week of the event. Certificates of participation will be available by request.
