Professional Learning

The Huntington supports teachers both locally and nationwide. We offer free-of-charge programming throughout the year where we invite educators to join our community and learn with Huntington Education staff, curators, collaborators, and scholars.

Summer Workshops 2022

Intensive workshops are offered each summer as a unique opportunity for teachers to learn about The Huntington’s diverse collections with Huntington education staff and curators. Summer workshops are designed to inspire teachers, provide strategies for working with the collections and build communities of practice. As part of the workshop, all participants are required to submit a learning resource inspired by The Huntington’s collections. Stipends and materials are available for all workshops. After the workshop, all participants receive a certificate of attendance.

Two Huntington Voices workshops are available: one for K–5 teachers and one for grades 6–12 teachers.

  • Workshops are five days long
  • Facilitated on-site at The Huntington, from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. daily
  • Anchored in themes to reinvigorate your instruction
  • Framed to build skills in the use of primary source materials and student-centered learning
  • Include a daily learning component, doing component, time to explore The Huntington’s collections, and behind-the-scenes presentations from Huntington staff
  • Includes a stipend, materials, and lunch


Huntington Voices 2022Huntington Voices

Week 1 for teachers grades K–5
Week 2 for teachers grades 6–12

Celebrating diverse voices in The Huntington's collections from various times and places, this five-day workshop brings teachers together to introduce them to compelling content, guide them in the use of primary sources, and learn new teaching strategies. By inspiring teachers with Huntington voices, the hope is to inspire student voices. Please note that priority will be given to educators who have not attended Huntington Voices in the past.

The workshop schedule is the same for both weeks. Where necessary, materials will be differentiated by grade level.

The 2022 application period for this workshop has closed. Check back for information about the 2023 schedule.
