Summer Teacher Institute for Virginia Teachers

July 12-15, 2021

The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation Summer Teacher Institute provides Virginia teachers with historical content and teaching strategies they can take back to the classroom.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. Funded by the Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation, Inc. Annual Fund and its donors, the teacher institute is free for all participants.

The 2021 teacher institute will take place July 12-15 at Jamestown Settlement in Williamsburg, Virginia, and will focus on the three cultures that converged at Jamestown in early Virginia.

Applications will open in late November 2020. For more information, application and recommendation instructions, please go to https://www.historyisfun.org/learn/teacher-programs/teacher-institute/teacher-institute-contents/
