Over 30 teachers from all over the country are in Princeton this week for the Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History summer seminar on the “Colonial Era.” Stay tuned for updates throughout the week.
Kudos to Nate McAlister, the 2010 National History of the Year, for helping with travel schedules and getting everyone set-up in their dorm rooms on the campus of Princeton University. We had a casual dinner last night and gave the teachers a sense of what they could expect this week. (One of the caterers, a 4th-grade teacher, got so excited about everything we were doing this week that she is going to consider applying next year!) After dinner we took a short voluntary tour of the Princeton campus.
It is going to be a hot and wet week in Princeton, but spirits are high!
