Teaching American History - Waynesboro
2008 Gilder Lehrman Institute
Each year the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History in New York sponsors a series of summer professional development seminars for elementary, middle, and high school teachers of history. These prestigious seminars are tuition free and provide stipends, books, teaching resources and room and board to participants. They are a wonderful opportunity for teachers to gain content knowledge, earn recertification points, and network with colleagues.
In 2007, the Woodrow Wilson Presidential Library hosted a Gilder Lehrman seminar on “The Idea that is America” featuring Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean of the Woodrow Wilson School at Princeton University.
In 2008, the Library hosted a seminar on “Woodrow Wilson and the War Years” featuringPatricia O’Toole of Columbia University. The seminar was held in Staunton from August 11-15, 2008.
