July Inservices at Norris Dam, Franklin, Nashville

Norris Dam


Tennessee History for Kids will have three all-day, in-person inservices this summer. All three are co-sponsored by TVA and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee.

The first will take place at Norris Dam State Park and Norris Dam (in Anderson County) on TUESDAY, July 11. Tennessee Valley Authority is partnering with us on this event, which will commemorate TVA’s 90th anniversary. It will feature presentations on the history of the Tennessee River and TVA, as well as “insider” tours of historic Norris Dam..

Here’s the crowd the last time TN History for Kids had an event at Carnton/Carter.


The second event will occur on FRIDAY July 14 at the Carter House and Carnton in Franklin.

All teachers will hear presentations on the Civil War in Tennessee, and then we will tour the Carter House, Carnton and McGavock Cemetery.

The third event will be Tuesday, July 18 at the Tennessee State Capitol. The focus of this event will be the passage of the Suffrage Amendment which (of course) took place inside the Capitol building. Among other things, this event will include a walking tour led by David Ewing. And, since the event is in the State Capitol, you never know who will drop in (last year, Rep. Sam Whitson gave us a tour of the House Chamber.)

Registration will cost only $40 for each event — a price that includes lunch. (Also, we strongly encourage people to carpool to Nashville, and we will return some of the $40 to each person who drives to offset the high cost of parking downtown!)

Also, in early August we will be staging our first in-person event especially for home school parent and older homeschool students (8th grade and above). We ask home schoolers not to register for these three TEACHER events. 

Thank you!
