Eighth Annual Summer Teacher Institute
July 24-26, 2009 at Fredericksburg, Virginia
The Civil War Preservation Trust (CWPT) will host its Eighth Annual Teacher Institute from July 24-26, 2009 in Spotsylvania County, VA. This free weekend will feature workshops, battlefield tours of Chancellorsville and Fredericksburg, entertainment, speakers, and networking opportunities. Teacher Institute workshops are opportunities for teachers to learn about Civil War instruction and content while engaging with other teachers who have similar interests, challenges, and experiences.
Once again, Virginia Tech's Center for Civil War Studies will be an active partner in the institute. Dr. James I. "Bud" Robertson, Director of the Center, will be a keynote speaker at the institute and will be joined by William C. Davis, Director of Programs for the Center. Through our partnership with Virginia Tech, CWPT is able to offer Continuing Education Unit credits to participating educators.
Any teacher or librarian/media specialist who works with students grades kindergarten through 12 may attend, not just history teachers. 2.0 Continuing Education Units are offered, by pre-registration.
