Application deadline: March 2, 2015

Applications are now being accepted for this new NEH-funded teacher workshop. Cultures of Independence: Perspectives on Independence Hall and the Meaning of Freedom will raise awareness of how Independence Hall has been involved in the ongoing process of creating a nation and civic life, not just in the magical moment of July 1776. During each day of a week-long workshop, 36 teachers will be immersed in a process of discovering and developing strategies for teaching the ongoing history of the American independence. Dr. Charlene Mires, author of Independence Hall in American Memory, will be the scholar-in-residence.

Additional information, along with application materials, is available at https://hsp.org/education/cultures-of-independence-institute or email: btwisshouting@hsp.org (please indicate NEH Institute in the subject line).
