NEH Summer Programs for Schoolteachers

Last week I shared with you some of lesson plans created by teachers who attended "The Richest Hills: Mining in the Far West, 1862–1920," a Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops For School Teachers.

The Richest Hills was only one of many workshops, seminars, and institutes sponsored by the NEH all across the country and around the world. These workshops are amazing experiences. And they are tuition free. And teachers receive travel stipends of between $1,200 and $3,900 to help cover trip expenses.

Seminars last 3-5 weeks. Topics on offer for 2016 include Communism and American Life (Atlanta) and Race and Mental Health in History and Literature (Blacksburg, VA and Washington, DC).

Institutes last 2-4 weeks. Topics include The Chinese Exclusion Act and Immigration in America (NYC).

Landmarks workshops (my favorite, because they take you to historic places) are one week. Topics include

Applications are due March 1, 2016. It's never too early to start thinking about summer, right?
