Upcoming Events

George Washington: The Presidency (Little Rock, AR)

Join the Mount Vernon Education Department for a day of professional development hosted by the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum.

Every American President has shaped the Office of the President in some way, but no person will ever have the lasting impact that George Washington did. Working from the Constitution, Washington made critical and long-lasting decisions about the symbolic, structural, and daily operations of presidential responsibilities. Explore the presidency and its impact on today’s political institutions and civic responsibilities at this Mount Vernon in Arkansas Teacher Institute. 

The workshop will be held at the William J. Clinton Presidential Library and Museum in Little Rock, AR from 9:30am-3:30pm (doors will open at 9:00am).

George Washington: An Artful Perspective (Bentonville, AR)

Join the Mount Vernon Education Department and Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art for a a day-long workshop focused on integrating art into social studies. 

Art can be a powerful primary source for historians, teachers, and students. At this Mount Vernon in Arkansas Teacher Institute, we invite participants to take a new look at our first president: through his portrayal in portraits, his interests in his youth, his intellectual pursuits in the arts and sciences. A multi-dimensional figure emerges beyond his memorialized political and military accomplishments. Exploration of these topics will help to expand the methods and relevant content connections between George Washington and your students. 

The workshop will be held at Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, AR from 9:00am-3:00pm (check-in begins at 8:30am) 

Please Note: This workshop is free of charge, but registration is required. Registration includes lunch, and 6 hours of Professional ADE credits can be earned.
