George Washington’s Mount Vernon is offering workshops on Washington’s influence in what later became Kentucky on March 28 in Frankfort and March 30 in Bowling Green.

These professional development opportunities can enable educators in grades K-12 to teach about Washington by applying 21st-century academic standards. Interactive sessions will explore Washington’s influence in the settlement of Kentucky and teaching U.S. history using museum objects and primary sources.

Workshops will be held March 28 at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort and March 30 at Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green. Both are from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. local time.

The program is free and includes lunch but requires a $20 deposit, which will be refunded after attendance at the workshop. Professional development certificates will be provided to participants who register and attend. Click these links for more information or to register for the workshops in Frankfort and Bowling Green.
