Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops are offered by the National Endowment for the Humanities to provide K-12 educators with the opportunity to engage in intensive study and discussion of important topics and issues in American history and culture, while providing them with direct experiences in the interpretation of significant historical and cultural sites and the use of archival and other primary evidence.
Prior to completing an application to a specific workshop, please review information from the project directors (available on the project’s website) and consider carefully what is expected in terms of residence and attendance, reading and writing requirements, and general participation in the work of the project. NEH Landmarks workshops allow 36 teachers at a time to collaborate with core faculty and visiting scholars. The workshops are designed to present the best available scholarship on a specific landmark or related cluster of landmarks. Participants benefit by gaining a sense of the importance of historical and cultural places, by making connections between the workshop content and what they teach, and by developing group or individual teaching and/or research materials.
