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

Register for "World War I"

January 26, 2024, 8:30 AM ET - 2:15 PM ET | Hosted by: Long Island Council for the Social Studies, Museum of American Armor | Old Bethpage, NY | Discussion Leader: Dr. John Moser

This seminar examines the American experience of World War I. The readings will allow participants to discuss how the rhetoric of making “the world safe for democracy” and the realities of fighting the war influenced the female suffrage and African American civil rights movements, daily life, civil liberties, and
foreign policy.

This program will be conducted as a 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. Teachers will receive a Letter of Attendance at the conclusion 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.
