Teacher Workshops

Professional development workshops provide a forum to engage with new scholarship in history, sustainable design, race, identity, and civic action.

Held at Brooklyn Historical Society’s main location on Pierrepont Street and at the Brooklyn Navy Yard, educators practice pedagogical approaches in collaboration with colleagues and learn about museum-based school programs and curricula.

Brooklyn Historical Society is an approved provider of NYS CTLE credits. The workshops listed below provide five (5) CTLE hours to participating professionals.
