If you are a K-8 teacher and are looking for a professional development opportunity this summer mark your calendars for July 24-30, 2016. Consider applying for our Gilder-Lehrman Institute summer seminar on "The 13 Colonies" at Princeton University.
Some blog posts from previous years.
Learn more about how to apply for the seminar here.
Here are few endorsements from K-8 teachers:
- “Dr. John Fea did a remarkable job sharing his knowledge in the area of the 13 colonies. His passion for history is evident in his lectures and I am more motivated today to teach tomorrow. I have always been intimidated by the 13 colonies because each colony's background is so diverse. I have a better grasp on the colonies and I will be able to share primary documents to support the classroom learning. I am looking forward to teaching this in the coming weeks.”
- "Thoroughly enjoyed the week in NJ. Strengthened my content background & walked away with tons of resources (primary specifically) to take back to my classroom."
- "This seminar was the best thing I have experienced in 25 years of teaching. Dr. Fea was outstanding and his lectures were riveting. I appreciated the content, the setting, and the master teacher's assistance. It was amazing and memorable. I will certainly be applying this content and these principles to my teaching this year."
