2017-18, No. 08 - NATIONAL WWII MUSEUM’S TEACHER INSTITUTE (GRADES 6-12)
Middle and high school teachers with at least three years of experience can participat...e in this 16-month professional development opportunity sponsored by the National WWII Museum in New Orleans. This year’s institute focuses on the U.S. Home Front and its role in securing Allied victories.
In Phase I (July 22-28), participants attend seminars at the museum and gain content, curriculum, and strategies for introducing students to the Home Front’s role in the war. In Phase II (the 2018-2019 school year), participants design and lead workshops for teachers using the curriculum resources they received in Phase I. The museum will help plan and advertise these workshops and give them free copies of the curriculum. In Phase III (July 2019), teachers travel to Pearl Harbor to spend a week exploring historic WWII sites related to Phase I’s key themes.
Participants receive free room and board, a travel stipend, most meals, and all seminar materials needed. Graduate credits are also available.
Media specialists, librarians, curriculum coordinators, and academic coaches who spend at least half their time directly instructing students may attend, as well as teachers of subjects other than social studies who can explain how the program will benefit their teaching.
