The Role and Legacy of George Washington and the Founding of the American Republic
George Washington was a soldier, politician, and farmer. Over the course of his career, he interacted with many Founding Fathers and revolutionaries such as James Madison, Alexander Hamilton, Henry Knox, and the Marquis de Lafayette. These relationships, along with his personal character, experience, and leadership qualities, not only shaped George Washington, but also the founding of the American Republic.
Throughout the three-day workshop, educators are invited to explore the life, leadership, and legacy of George Washington and his role in the founding of a new American experiment. Participants will do a deep dive into 18th-century content, including primary sources, and gain strategies and new methodology to take back to their classroom.
The three-day workshop includes housing, supplies, meals, and a $100 travel stipend. The workshop will run from Friday, September 22 at 9 a.m. and conclude on Sunday, September 24 at 1:30 p.m.
