As part of the National Endowment for the Humanities’ We the People program, Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshops for Schoolteachers are offered to provide the opportunity for K-12 educators to engage in intensive study and discussion of important topics in American history. The one-week academies give participants direct experiences in the interpretation of significant historical sites and the use of archival and other primary historical evidence. Workshop topics include Shaping the Constitution: A View from Mount Vernon, 1783-1789, The American Skyscraper: Transforming Chicago and the Nation, and Jump at the Sun: Zora Neale Hurston and Her Eatonville Roots.
