The National WWII Museum in New Orleans just opened up applications for its third annual Summer Teacher Institute. Participants spend a week here at the Museum learning from top WW2 scholars, analyzing artifacts in our vault, reviewing innovative curriculum resources, and practicing strategies for making World War II more relatable and interesting for today’s students. Participants also earn six hours of graduate credit and have the opportunity to travel to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii for an extended look at WWII sites on Oahu. Perhaps best of all, the program (including travel) is free for the thirty or so teachers we accept each year.
Full details and the application itself are located at nationalww2museum.org/institute
