"The 13 Colonies" Gilder-Lehrman Seminar at Princeton is Back!

The Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History just released its Summer Seminars for 2015.

Once again I will be doing a seminar on the 13 colonies at Princeton University for K-8 history teachers.  Head over to the Gilder-Lehrman website to learn more about how to apply for these free seminars.  If you are selected, Gilder-Lehrman covers all your expenses for the week, including travel to Princeton.

In addition to attending daily lectures and preparing a lesson on colonial America, the members of last year's seminar spent a day touring Philadelphia, took a twilight walking tour of early American Princeton, and spent a couple of hours in the Princeton rare book room examining copies of seventeenth and eighteenth-century texts.  The food at Princeton was pretty good too.  So were the accommodations and the ice-cream at The Bent Spoon!
