Emancipation and Evolving American Identity

A two-week summer institute for 36 K-12 teachers on the process of emancipation in Civil War-era America.

The American Civil War Museum’s (ACWM) new two-week NEH Summer Institute Emancipation and Evolving American Identity will bring three dozen K-12 teachers to a deeper understanding of the history of emancipation and its impact on Americans past and present. Civil War-era scholars will contextualize the policy and process of emancipation through lectures, discussions, and visits to historic sites. Additionally, public history professionals and experienced K-12 educators will provide primary sources and model best practices for teaching an often complex, sensitive, and misunderstood topic. Ultimately, participants will create a plan to lead a professional development session for their school or district that models the content, techniques, and resources learned at the Institute.
