Below is an opportunity that has been forwarded to me from the Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington . If you are interested, the application is open until February 3rd. See details below.
My department at Mount Vernon hosts 6 week-long summer PD institutes for K-12 teachers about George Washington and the world he lived in. Each week is a different theme (see attached flyer or www.mountvernon.org/summerresidentials for more details). We accept all teachers – not just history teachers – who can demonstrate that they use George Washington/the world he lived in in their curriculum. We’ve had history teachers, ELA teachers, reading specialists, art teachers, media specialists, science teachers, culinary arts teachers, etc. attend the program.
Our application deadline was January 13, but we have specific funding for Rhode Island teachers and are looking for a few more applicants. We’re leaving the application open until February 3 at midnight. We are not posting the application link publicly on the website but interested teachers can find the application here: https://mountvernon-teachers.embark.com/apply/summer2020.
Questions can be sent to GWTI@mountvernon.org or to me at email@example.com.
