This annual day-long conference focuses on the theme “The Coming Revolution: 1763-1775” and immerses teachers in primary sources, material culture, and pedagogical techniques to help connect students to history. Presentations are by classroom teachers, museum staff, archivists, and academics.
The conference takes place on the Friday preceding Fort Ticonderoga’s Twenty-Fifth Annual War College of the Seven Years’ War, a weekend-long seminar focused on the French & Indian War (1754-1763). Educators attending both the Conference and the War College receive a discount on conference registration.
