Teachers will explore the varied ways that Americans experienced social and technological change from the 1760s through the 1920s through an innovation lens, looking at the era's "great men" and the diverse men, women and children who made it reality, its accomplishments and failures. Lively interactions with visiting scholars, staff, and colleagues will connect teachers to content and skills applicable across disciplines, including inquiry and The Henry Ford's Model I innovation learning framework. Henry Ford Museum of American Innovation, Greenfield Villag, Ford Rouge Factory Tour, and Benson Ford Research Center provide all the historic sites and artifacts at one location.
