Kentucky teachers in grades 3-12 are invited to apply for a free residential experience at George Washington’s Mount Vernon on Sept. 10-13 in Mount Vernon, Virginia.
“A Weekend With George Washington” is a four-day, immersive residential program for teachers from Kentucky and Missouri. Attendees will participate in an intensive study of George Washington and his world through a curriculum that includes discussions led by Washington scholar Denver Brunsman, as well as hands-on workshops exploring Washington’s life and interests at Mount Vernon. Through study, discussion, tours and projects, participants will gain a new and deeper understanding of the life and character of George Washington and his unique legacy in creating and shaping the principles of America’s democracy.
Teachers receive a travel stipend and will be housed on the Mount Vernon grounds. Participants are required to perform at least one in-service session for colleagues in their home district or state.
