Back to School with NMAD: Teaching Diplomacy Workshops

5:00 - 6:00 pm EDT


To help educators prepare for the fast approaching Fall semester, NMAD is hosting professional development workshops on how to use our new resources.

In the one-hour session, we will share how to introduce and incorporate diplomacy and global perspectives into your curriculum with our new video products, classroom activities, an online interactive, and of course, our diplomacy simulation program.

Through these free resources, we give educators and students the language and skills of diplomats. These 21st-century skills encourage global competencies, knowledge, and attitudes that will equip them to become engaged citizens.

The workshop sessions are offered on three different dates and times (select one):

  • Saturday, August 12, 12:00 – 1:00 pm EDT
  • Wednesday, August 16, 1:00 – 2:00 pm EDT
  • Tuesday, August 22, 5:00 – 6:00 pm EDT

Workshops will include:

  • Introduction to diplomacy and the work of the State Department, which teachers can integrate into classroom instruction.
  • Discussion starters to build productive conversations in the classroom.
  • Overview of video products that introduce the language and practice of diplomacy.
  • Support in integrating classroom activities and object-based learning with NMAD’s collections.
  • Introduction to NMAD’s diplomacy simulation program.

The workshop session is tailored to 6th to 12th-grade teachers. However, all educators are welcome to attend!

These workshops will be hosted through Zoom. The password will be sent directly to your email in the days leading up to your selected session.
