Here is an excellent opportunity for any Missouri teachers for grades 3-12!
Through the generous support of the Paul M. Shatz and Deane Lee Shatz Charitable Foundation, Missouri teachers (grades 3-12) are invited to apply for a totally FREE residential experience at The Fred W. Smith National Library for the Study of George Washington at Mount Vernon, to be held the weekend of September 18-23, 2014.
A Weekend With George Washington is a four-day, immersive residential program in which accepted teachers participate in an intensive study of George Washington and his world. The curriculum includes discussions led by noted Washington scholars, and hands-on workshops exploring Washington’s life and interests at Mount Vernon. Through study, discussion, tours, and projects, participants will gain a new and deeper understanding of the life and character of George Washington and his unique legacy in creating and shaping the principles of America’s democracy. All teachers accepted into the program will reside on the grounds of Washington’s home. A travel stipend, as well as all lodging, meals, workshops, and materials are included in the program.
Application deadline is August 8, 2014, but they expect to accept only 15 teachers, so if you are interested apply early!
