Portrait of Deborah Read Franklin

As you prepare your classrooms and lessons for March’s celebration of Women’s History, spend some time learning about resources the APS can provide! For this workshop, we’ll focus on women represented in the  collections and archives at the APS with a spotlight on Deborah Read Franklin and Mildred Cohn. We will also share some tips on navigating our collections search functions and other digital resources to find what you need. 

In this workshop, educators will learn more about these two figures, explore the APS collections online, and discuss classroom applications. Papers and collections of many other women represented in the APS collections will also be discussed.
