Revolutionary Words: The Gutenberg Press

Revolutionary Words: The Gutenberg Press

During this interactive presentation about the Gutenberg press, learners will experience an unusual interruption by a special guest. This is a contextual learning opportunity to compare the reproduction of reading materials in the fifteenth century to today.

This program is offered for middle and high school students.

If I Had a Hammer

A hammer is not the only tool Martin Luther used to spark the Protestant Reformation! Learners will choose two “tools” out of six to assess their influence on the Protestant Reformation. Following this assessment, they will consider how the absence of any of Luther’s “tools” could have redirected the outcome.

This program is offered for middle and high school students.

Material Culture and the Hebrew Bible

Learners are given tools to engage with material culture from the biblical period to better understand the biblical text. By juxtaposing artifacts from the exhibit The People of the Land: History and Archaeology of Ancient Israel and challenging biblical verses, we are able to show students how archaeological remains allow us to better understand the text.  

This program is offered for middle and high school students.
