An Invitation for U.S. History Teachers
The Belmont University History Department and The Belmont Mansion
"Belle Monte and the Civil War: A Teaching Symposium"
This event will bring together educators from a variety of Middle Tennessee schools, and grade levels, to participate in a symposium focused on more effective (efficient, inclusive) ways of teaching U.S. Civil War history. A panel of educators, with a representative from each educational level, will deliver short presentations on their strategies and tactics for teaching Civil War history, with questions, comments, and general conversation following their presentations. The program is intended to foster a positive and open working relationship between the History Department at Belmont University and history and social studies departments and teachers throughout Middle Tennessee.
