2013 Teacher Seminars – Summer


Submission Deadline: February 15, 2013

Full-time K–12 history and English language arts teachers are invited to apply for the Gilder Lehrman Institute’s renowned Teacher Seminars. Led by eminent historians and held at major educational and historical institutions, these one-week interdisciplinary seminars give educators the opportunity to deepen their knowledge of topics in American history and literature while they gain practical resources and strategies to bring these subjects to life in the classroom.

This year, new coursework and focus will align seminar content with Common Core State Standards. 

Seminars are academically rigorous and intellectually rich. Two new Online Teacher Seminars feature daily live lectures by lead scholars, virtual field trips, and real-time discussion.

Books, room, and board are included; teachers may commute if they prefer.     Each seminar is limited to thirty participants who are selected through a competitive application process.
