George Washington’s Mount Vernon is offering the George Washington Teacher Institute Summer Residential Programs, five-day immersive professional learning experiences designed to support K-12 educators who teach about the life, leadership and legacy of George Washington and the 18th-century world in which he lived.
The best elements of Mount Vernon’s residential programs are accessible to educators, with a different thematic focus each session that allows them to focus on the 18th-century subjects that are most relevant to their classroom: government, women, military, slavery, leadership and business.
Six sessions are available June 13-Aug. 12. Each program will include:
- In-depth content and primary source analysis.
- Immersive 18th-century experiences with historical interpreters and subject matter experts.
- Lively debate and engaged collaboration with visiting scholars, fellow participants and Mount Vernon staff.
- Classroom applicability, including technology integration.
- Connections between historical events and contemporary student experiences.
The application deadline is Jan. 31. Click here for more information.
