Landmarks of American History and Culture - workshops for teachers.

Th​is​ NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture workshop will allow an interdisciplinary group of teachers to enrich their knowledge of the Civil War by learning about ways that collective memories develop and circulate. Workshop participants will study the monuments and significant collections of objects and artifacts housed at cultural institutions throughout the Richmond, Virginia region.

Through the lectures, site visits, discussions, and interacting with primary source materials, teachers will come to understand the complexities of the collective memories of the Civil War, focusing on how collective memory tends to over simplify and present narrow versions of history. We will focus on how collective memories circulate and are represented through historic and artistic means.  

All full-time and part-time K-12 teachers are invited to apply!

​The workshops will be the weeks of:

June 26-July 1

July 10-July 16

​Participants must apply by March 1, 2016 and will be notified by March 31, 2016.  All participants who complete the entire workshop will receive a stipend of $1,200 that ​is intended to help cover the costs of lodging, travel, meals, etc.
