Learning from Life: Daily Life in the Time of Washington
Join experts and museum educators from George Washington's Mount Vernon and the Huntington Library to explore the political and private spheres of four 18th-century individuals, including George Washington. The workshop will feature two lectures to contextualize the time period, primary sources from both Mount Vernon and the Huntington Library, and time in the galleries. In addition, participants will be asked to consider real-world application of the materials for students.
The workshop will begin at 9 a.m. and end at 3:30 p.m. Lunch will be provided. Substitute funding or stipend is available for the first 30 participants.
