Social studies educators are invited to join Discovery Education and Ford’s Theatre at 1 p.m. ET March 26 for a unique virtual event offered as part of the commemorative programming planned for “Ford’s 150: Remembering the Lincoln Assassination,” a series of events marking 150 years since the assassination of Abraham Lincoln at Ford’s Theatre in Washington.
Ford’s Theatre experts will transport students back in American history at the time of Lincoln’s assassination. Classrooms will tour the working theatre, get a behind-the-scenes look at the Petersen House (where Lincoln died), discuss the conspiracy surrounding the assassination events and reflect on the lasting leadership and legacy of our 16th President.
The event is free, and no special equipment is required to view it online. Students will also have the chance to submit questions that may be answered live during the event. Click here for more information.
