Since 2005, The Henry Ford has hosted NEH professionalization workshops for K–12 teachers, bringing more than 350 educators to Dearborn, Michigan to learn more about America’s Industrial Revolution. The workshop attracts educators from across the nation with a broad range of specializations: the staff particularly aim to include a diversity of expertise and experience in each workshop cohort. And while the program is especially attractive to social studies teachers, many STEM teachers also use what they learn in the workshop as an opportunity to provide historical and cultural context to the concepts they teach.
