Baseball has always been America’s national pastime, but it also provides a lens on a wide range of historical issues—race and gender, crime and justice, popular culture and civic participation. The Chicago History Museum and the Teaching with Primary Sources Program at DePaul University invite you to a collaborative PD program to explore these issues through a variety of primary sources. Participants will examine the Black Sox scandal; the women and people of color who broke baseball’s traditional gender and racial barriers; and larger connections between baseball and American society.
This FREE program is open to teachers of all grade levels and subject areas. Teachers will receive 3 PD hours for participating.
