May 2020 | Hosted by: Teaching American History

Building on the success of our Insights from History series of special daytime webinars, we are happy to present another special series, which will debut on 6 May. All four episodes in this series will take place on Wednesdays at 1pm ET, and will each run for 60 minutes. Dr. Jeff Sikkenga, Professor of Political Science at Ashland University and Executive Director of the Ashbrook Center, will interview members of our faculty to discuss the noteworthy accomplishments and contributions of individual Americans from different periods in our history. Each episode will focus on two heroes - one well-known and one lesser-known - and will feature relevant original documents and thoughtful analysis and conversation about these individuals.

As with all our webinars, all attendees will be provided with access to primary source readings before each episode airs, and will be emailed a printable certificate to account for continuing education.


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.
