Opportunities for 7th graders at NYHS this week

 Dear 7th grade students and families,

We wanted to share with you more exciting opportunities from the New York Historical Society for students this week.  Educators from the NYHS are hosting weekly online lessons for students as part of their “History @ Home” series during remote learning in NYC. Some of you participated last week and the feedback was positive!


Students, if you love history or want to deepen your understanding of what we’re learning this year, consider participating in one of the following opportunities this week:

  1. Tuesday: Academy for American Democracy, Branches of Government in the U.S. and Ancient Athens: Some of you participated in last week’s online Student Session at the NYHS about Representative Democracy in the early US Direct Democracy in Ancient Athens, and the feedback their teachers received from them was very positive!  The next lesson in that series this Tuesday is, which is also great fit to our current unit. Don’t be concerned that it is advertised as a 6th grade lesson – 7th graders can participate too! 
  2. Wednesday: New York, New Nation – Did you know that our own NYC was the first capital of the United States? If you’d like to learn more about the role of NYC in the new nation, Wednesday’s lesson is for you!


These are OPTIONAL opportunities. If you would like for your child to participate in one or both of these sessions, please use the links below to register.


We look forward to “seeing” some of our students at the NYHS this week!
