Summer Teacher Institute for Virginia Teachers

The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation Summer Teacher Institute provides Virginia teachers with historical content and teaching strategies they can take back to the classroom.  Participants experience authentic learning activities and create lessons and performance tasks they can use for years to come.  This teacher institute is funded by donors to the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation and is free to all participants.

The 2020 teacher institute will take place July 13-16 at the American Revolution Museum at Yorktown in Yorktown, Virginia, and will focus on the Revolutionary War.

Applications will be accepted beginning November 30, 2019, through April 12, 2020.  Please visit the Teacher institute Program content page for more details!
