at The Sixth Floor Museum!

The Sixth Floor Museum offers professional development for teachers throughout the year. Professional development workshops inspire teaching that goes beyond the textbook as educators spend time in a historic setting allowing for firsthand engagement with history and interaction with Museum staff. Teachers leave equipped with resource materials that can be applied in the classroom the next day. We can also arrange professional development on your campus or via videoconference. Contact education@jfk.org for more information.
