Free Teacher Workshop
Join us as we host the International Spy Museum for a teacher workshop. 3 CPDU hours available to teachers who attend both the Teacher Workshop and following Public Program that begins at 6:00 PM. Workshop is best fit for middle and high school teachers.
For two weeks in October 1962, the world held its breath while President Kennedy and Soviet Premier Khrushchev navigated one of the most intense showdowns of the Cold War. Intelligence changed hourly and if not for a key source within the Soviet government, the outcome might have been very different – nuclear war rather than strained peace.
Travel back in time with the International Spy Museum’s Director of Youth Education, Lucy Stirn, as she leads a hands-on simulation about this pivotal moment in history. During this professional development workshop, teachers will step into the shoes of a CIA analyst in October 1962—analyzing declassified U-2 photographs and documents to make recommendations to President Kennedy at various stages of the crisis. By the end of the simulation, teachers will have all the resources and tools needed to teach the Cuban Missile Crisis in their own classroom.
After the workshop, join us for the Teacher Happy Hour at 5:30 PM and public program at 6:00 PM.
