For a fifth consecutive year, the Northeast Alabama Community College Learning Resources Center has received a grant from the Alabama Humanities Foundation, the state affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities. The theme of the workshop is “Andrew Jackson and His Legacy: A Workshop for K-12 Teachers.” As many as 50 local teachers may attend the event, which will be held on Monday, March 4, 2019, in the Cecil B. Word Learning Resources Center on the NACC campus.
Presenters will include Dr. Daniel Feller, professor of history at the University of Tennessee and editor of three presidential volumes of The Papers of Andrew Jackson, as well as Ms. Erin Adams, Director of Education and Interpretation at The Hermitage, Andrew Jackson’s home. A traveling exhibit from The Hermitage will also be available for workshop participants to view.
Dr. Julia Everett, head librarian/division director and co-writer of the grant noted, “Archivist Blake Wilhelm and I look forward to events such as these that highlight local history and bring outstanding presenters to our campus. We are so fortunate to have the support of an organization such as the Alabama Humanities Foundation that finds as much value in these events as we do.”
Registration for the event will be open to K-12 teachers now through February 15, 2019, or until the workshop is full, whichever comes first. Teachers interested in registering for the event should go to https://andrewjacksonworkshop.eventbrite.com
