Online Professional Development for Teachers
The George Washington Teacher Institute's 5-day digital, professional development programs are designed to support K12 educators who teach about the life, leadership, and legacies of George Washington and the 18th-century world in which he lived.
Our format, with a different thematic focus for each week, allows educators the flexibility to choose the 18th-century subjects that are most relevant to their classroom and state standards.
Virtual Field Trips & Networking
Each session will bring American History to life through conversations with experts, virtual field trips to the Mount Vernon Estate, and peer-to-peer networking with like-minded educators.
A diversity of voices will contribute to your understanding of the 18th century and highlight ways to connect George Washington and his world to your students today.
$750 Stipends to Participants
Stipends in the amount of $750 to honor the time and commitment of participants will be provided to all teachers accepted to the George Washington Teacher Institute for programs during Summer 2021.
