The Virginia Historical Society is hosting a week-long class this summer–twice, in fact–and if you’re a public or private school teacher in Virginia, you’re invited.
From the VHS:
Are you a teacher or do you know one? The Virginia Historical Society is hosting its Weinstein Properties Story of Virginia Teachers Institutes again this summer. The week-long institute takes place July 10–14 and is repeated July 24–28. The classes are open to all Virginia public and private school teachers. The institutes provide an overview of the rich history of Virginia from the earliest habitation to the present. Teachers will explore the vast VHS collections and learn how to teach their students to analyze primary sources and use historical thinking skills.
Registration is $50, which is refunded upon completion of the class. In addition, the VHS requires a letter of recommendation from a supervisor. Lunches and materials are provided free of charge, and participating teachers will be eligible for recertification points and CEUs through the University of Richmond’s School of Professional and Continuing Studies.
