Weekend Seminars at Historic Sites

Learning through discussion, led by a scholar.

Teaching American History programs are different from other teaching seminars you might attend. In our seminars, participants read primary sources from American history and spend their time in thoughtful discussion. They leave with a richer appreciation for broader themes in history and a better understanding of how to bring discussion-based learning to their own classrooms.

Upcoming Teacher Seminars

Teachers across the country are uncovering the story of our nation.

The Core Documents Volumes
