The Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History just released its Summer Seminars for 2015.
Once again I will be doing a seminar on the 13 colonies at Princeton University for K-8 history teachers. Head over to the Gilder-Lehrman website to learn more about how to apply for these free seminars. If you are selected, Gilder-Lehrman covers all your expenses for the week, including travel to Princeton.
In addition to attending daily lectures and preparing a lesson on colonial America, the members of last year’s seminar spent a day touring Philadelphia, took a twilight walking tour of early American Princeton, and spent a couple of hours in the Princeton rare book room examining copies of seventeenth and eighteenth-century texts. The food at Princeton was pretty good too. So were the accommodations and the ice-cream at The Bent Spoon!
