Join education specialists from several Presidential Libraries and Museums for this professional development program for educators on teaching elections with the records of the National Archives. Each participating Presidential Library will share an election story about their President and suggestions for engaging students in learning about this important civic process. With the 2024 presidential election right around the corner, this program will provide new ideas for using historical examples to teach elections in the classroom. Participating teachers will discover how to access classroom resources from the Presidential Libraries and Civics for All of US, the national civic education initiative of the National Archives.
