Educator Series at The Henry Ford

This past summer I attended a WONDERFUL workshop at The Henry Ford organized and funded through the National Endowment for the Humanities Grant. The Henry Ford is a wonderful place filled with history, excitement, and real hands-on learning experiences. Check it out today! 

The Henry Ford offers numerous workshops for teachers with the idea to “Learn, Share, co-design, and get rejuvenated and energized to teach!” The Henry Ford truly values teachers as partners in the learning process and provides FREE online resources, interactive lessons, and a plethora of on-site materials.
