The intensive six-day Teacher Institute immerses you in American history in Williamsburg, the restored capital city of eighteenth-century Virginia, as well as nearby historic sites. During the Institute, you will learn museum techniques that will actively engage your students in the study of history. Throughout the week you will work with museum staff and interpreters, analyze primary sources, and take part in historic simulations.
