Dear Civil War Educator,
As you may know, every year, for the past 10 years, the Civil War Trust has held an annual Teacher Institute. This year the Institute will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, July 14-17, 2011.
The Civil War Trust's Teacher Institute is created for teachers, librarians, and educators who work with students in grades K-12. The Institute is offered free for anyone in the aforementioned categories and is one of the few professional development opportunities that is specifically focused on instruction of the American Civil War.
As a former teacher and frequent conference attendee, I know how beneficial a meaningful and instructive conference can be, so we work diligently to make sure that the Institute is informative, constructive, and thought-provoking. We do this by hosting teacher exhibits, providing workshops, lectures, networking opportunities, battlefield tours, and take-home resources such as The Civil War Curriculum.
Our goal is to bring 200 (or more) teachers to this year's Institute so help us by signing-up today or by passing this information along to an educator who you know would love to go. Scholarships are available for first time attendees to cover the cost of travel and lodging. We will be taking applications until April 25th.
To see the details and register, go here.
Thank you for your support,
NOTE: Membership is required to attend. The cost is $35 for 2 years. Become a member here.
