Workshop session Workshops 

Looking for a great workshop opportunity for educators or students? The Reagan Library offers many ongoing workshops.  Additionally, staff are available to tailor programs to meet the needs or your department, district, classroom or other group. Available workshop offerings include:

  • Media Literacy Forum: For teachers, representatives from the Johnson and Reagan Libraries will roll out and share media literacy curriculum created using both contemporary and historical documents from the National Archives and Records Administration. The curriculum is classroom-ready and designed to be used to help students identify and recognize bias in media. 
  • Teaching History Through Art: The Teaching History Through Art curriculum was developed as a joint project among the Reagan Library, the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, and California Lutheran University. Utilizing photographs and paintings from across California, the curriculum engages students in developing visual literacy within a historical context.
  • Leadership Challenge: The National Archives Team at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library has created an award-winning, cutting edge technological simulation that will test your team’s leadership capabilities. This modern fictional foreign policy crisis scenario is based on historic events and takes place within an actual Situation Room from the White House, used by nine presidents. Challenge your team in a realistic, fast-paced and demanding environment.
