Teacher Resources

Teacher Workshops

Discover and share ideas with fellow teachers at Old South Meeting House’s teacher workshops. Often offered in partnership with other museums and historic sites, workshops featuring scholars and museum educators provide resources for teaching American history in fun, experiential formats. Many workshops offer professional development points to Massachusetts teachers, as well as the opportunity to earn graduate credit. Please sign up for our Teacher Email List to learn about upcoming opportunities by sending an email to our Education Department at  education@osmh.org  from your preferred email address.  Please include your name, school name and address (city and state), the grade(s) you teach, and a daytime phone number.

Customized Programs and Workshops

Old South Meeting House Education staff can work with your group to tailor existing programs, including the Tea is Brewing tea tax debate program, to the needs of various teacher groups and institutes. We can also provide more in-depth, on-demand workshops that include examination of primary documents and artifacts. Please contact the Education Department directly at  education@osmh.org  with inquiries.
