For Teachers

The Historical Society is proud to present quality education programs for pre-K through 12th grade students. Our programs are designed to complement your curriculum, meet state curriculum standards, and offer a variety of options for your History Center or museum experience.

The MVHS Education Team is here to help you teach and bring history to life in any way we can.

Professional development

Do you need continuing education hours?  Let us help!  We can work with your administration to get credit for programs like evening lectures, walking tours, and other museum programs.  Need something more in depth?  We can custom create a professional development program to meet your needs.

Teacher In-Service days

Let us come to you!  We can work with a team of teachers to help introduce primary sources, research, and unique tactics for bringing history to life in your classrooms.

Curriculum and research assistance

Do you have a topic that you just can’t seem to dive into? Let us help!  We can help you customize a lesson plan or activity to meet your students where they are.

Customized programs

Are you studying a topic beyond the scope of our offered outreach programs?  We can customize a local history focused curriculum program just for you and your classroom!  Let us know the topic, grade level, and desired outcomes and we’ll get to work on it.

We can do all of those and more!  These programs do take time to put together, so please give us at least three weeks’ notice before your desired program date.
