If you’re a teacher who is looking to deepen your approach to teaching US history this summer, your starting point is to attend our summer institute August 2-6 at ESD 112. If you’re looking to go further, I encourage you to consider applying for one of the Gilder Lehrman or NEH offerings. These sessions, lasting between 1 and 5 weeks, are rich offerings that have minimal – or no – impact on your pocketbook. Some of the offerings are familiar to ESD 112 TAH participants: You can study the Civil Rights Movement in Birmingham Alabama or The Constitution with Will Harris in Montpelier or Los Angeles. Just reading the titles of the many other offerings spurs curiosity and excitement. Check it out!
Updated 11/25: There is also this offering for international work: “The Educational Seminars program offers Department of State funded grants for U.S. school teachers and administrators. Exchanges are short term, taking place during the summer, and focus on sharing of best practices and professional development.”
