Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History (New York, NY 10036-5900)
Denver Alexander Brunsman (Project Director: March 2020 to present)
The Making of America: Colonial Era to Reconstruction

A one-week institute for 30 K-8 teachers on United States history from the colonial era through Reconstruction, to be held in Washington, DC. 

The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History (GLI) is requesting a Summer Seminars and Institutes for K-12 Educators grant for an innovative weeklong summer institute (level I) on American history (late 15th to the 19th century) for 30 elementary and middle school teachers. Scheduled for July 11-17, 2021, the institute will take place at George Washington University. “The Making of America: Colonial Era to Reconstruction” is purposefully broad to address the needs of underserved K-8 educators, many of whom have had little or no coursework in American history. Founded in 1994, GLI is the leading nonprofit organization dedicated to K-12 history education with a mission to eradicate historical illiteracy and promote civic engagement through educational programs and resources.
