Join us at the table and explore America's story in the words of those who lived it.

Register for "The American Family in Times of Crisis: Education, Health Care, and the Tradeoffs of Coming Home"

April 22, 2020 | Hosted by: Teaching American History

TAH invites you to a special week-day webinar on a timely topic for teachers of history and government: the economic aspects of a national crisis. Teaching American History offers this program in the belief that it may give us a clearer perspective on the political response to today’s COVID-19 crisis.   

The fifth episode in our “Insights from History” webinar series, hosted by Dr. Jeff Sikkenga of Ashland University and Executive Director of the Ashbrook Center, will feature Dr. Lauren Hall of the Rochester Institute of Technology. They will discuss how the American family has reacted to and been shaped by times of national crisis.

Attendees will be able to ask questions using the chat feature of Webex, and all registrants will be sent login information the day before and the morning of the program, which will take place at 1 pm Eastern time on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. It is scheduled to last for 60 minutes. As with all TAH webinars, we will record this program and post it on our YouTube channel and through our podcast. If you register and don't attend you will automatically receive links to those archives.

If you've attended any of our other webinars or taken an online graduate class, you're all set. If you're new to us, you can find WebEx system requirements and get the free downloads here.


Teaching American History
"It gave me a better understanding of the Founders’ views. They saw that restricting religious liberty is not only wrong; it leads to animosity within society. This year, I will begin both my government class and my class on “Law and Modern Society” with George Washington’s Letter to the Hebrew Congregation at Newport." — Sean B.
