Teaching the History and Culture of Vast Early America

A two-week institute for 25 K-12 teachers on the broad history of colonial America.

The Omohundro Institute of Early American History & Culture seeks support for a first-time Level I NEH Teacher Institute that will immerse 25 teachers in Vast Early America, an approach that captures the diverse experiences, people, and geography across early North America. The two-week institute will bring teachers to Williamsburg, Virginia, from July 4–July 17, 2021 to explore early American history and to introduce the participants to tools of historical discovery that will facilitate research projects about the early American history of the places where they live and teach. Lectures, seminars, and primary sources available online, many of them newly available, as well as documents and artifacts found in physical archives and museums in Williamsburg-area collections, will give teachers a powerful platform for connecting the past to the present when they return to their classrooms and communities.
