The National WWI Museum and Memorial is launching national partnerships for one-day educator workshops on World War I and its enduring impact on the world. These professional development opportunities are funded by Congress through the U.S. WWI Centennial Commission. For each, Museum and Memorial educators collaborate with partner organizations to offer a blend of meaningful content and primary source focused methodology at a chosen location within each state.
Partners for WWI 360: Teach Like an Ace workshops should be interested in providing thought-provoking content to diversify and improve pedagogical approaches to teaching using WWI in social science, language arts, and STEAM classrooms. Partners have included:
Each location will enroll 40-50 local primary and/or secondary teachers and provide a host space with A/V capabilities.
Workshop participants will receive six hours of professional development, a collection of ready-to-use, cross-curricular teaching resources and the opportunity to publish with the National WWI Museum and Memorial. A meal and snacks are included.
As we expand these workshops into your state, we would deeply benefit from and appreciate your insight. Our Curator of Education is interested in a call to discuss the following:
At the heart of this effort is the intention to improve how WWI is taught in the United States and be flexible to organizational needs; if a one-day workshop is not the best model, we want to figure what will best serve your institutions and educators.
