Register for "Primaries & Elections"

August 8, 2023, 12:00 PM PT - 2:00 PM PT | Hosted by: TeachingAmericanHistory.org & Garden Grove Unified School District (Held Online) | Discussion Leader: Dr. Eric Sands

This online seminar will examine how political candidates navigate the machinations of the election year. Specifically, the mechanics of political primaries, caucuses, and Super Tuesday with a look at recent previous elections as case studies.

This program will be conducted as a Socratic discussion, utilizing primary source documents as the only readings, and with the Discussion Leader facilitating the conversation, instead of lecturing or presenting. Registrants, therefore, are highly encouraged to read all the documents in advance and come ready with questions. All attendees will receive a Letter of Attendance at the end of the seminar.


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.
