Troops to Teachers: Helping Communities and Classrooms Understand the Military Experience

A one-year program for 30 veterans who are schoolteachers in Virginia and North Carolina to prepare them to lead humanities-based discussions on war and military service in their communities and classrooms.

In this project, the National Humanities Center (NHC) will work with the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction (NCDPI) and the Virginia Department of Education (VDOE) to give veterans who are currently in-service public school educators an opportunity to deepen their understandings of their military service through the study of literary texts that reflect their experiences in both conflict and peace. This cohort will create school-based projects that model the same approach in their communities with large percentages of military and active duty personnel, focusing on students, families, and community members.
