Landmarks of American History and Culture: Workshops for School Teachers: As part of its We the People initiative, NEH seeks proposals for a series of one-week residence-based workshops for K-12 educators that use historic sites to address central themes and issues in American history, government, literature, art history, or other related subjects in the humanities. The goals of the workshops are to: * provide teachers with training and experience in the use and interpretation of historical sites and the material resources and archival evidence of American history and culture; * increase knowledge and appreciation of places significant to American history and culture; and * encourage historical sites to develop greater capacity and scale for professional development programs. Workshops should be held at or near sites important to American history and culture (e.g., presidential residences or libraries, Colonial-era settlements, major battlefields, historic districts, and sites associated with major writers or artists). Applicants should make a compelling case for the historical significance of the site, the documents and material resources available for use, and the ways the site will enhance the workshop.
