During the months of June and July, the National Archives will host free teacher summer institutes in Washington, D.C.; Austin, TX; Abilene, KS; Kansas City, MO; and Chicago, IL. Each Institute is a week long and is designed to provide access to resources for teachers of upper elementary, secondary and college levels. Teacher participants, who will receive classroom materials and a $250 stipend, will research historical records and create classroom materials. The goal is for teachers to learn how to develop materials “that sharpen students’ skills and enthusiasm for history, government, and other humanities.” Sessions scheduled for the National Archives in D.C. and at the Eisenhower Library in Abilene will feature STEM subject areas. Graduate credit is available for a fee. Ten-member classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, so if you are interested, sign up now.
