Refections from Teachers at the Springfield Armory
Saturday, February 9, 2019

Educators from kindergarten through high school in the Pioneer Valley joined together to explore local history, primary sources, literacies and the Springfield Armory National Historic Site. All participants used the Springfield Armory as the course classroom, and then worked on lesson plans and units that focused on local history. A focus was on innovation and technology, as the group explored how the Springfield Armory long served as a hub of manufacturing and history in our region, and beyond.
