FDR and the World Crisis, 1933-1945: Understanding Roosevelt’s World Through the Prism of Hyde Park
NEH Landmarks in American History and Culture Workshop
July 15-20 OR July 22-27, 2007
The Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute, with its partner organizations the National Archives and Records Administration, the National Park Service, and Marist College, are inviting applications for the Summer 2007 NEH Landmarks in American History and Culture Workshop.
This unique Teachers Workshop will take place on the grounds of the Roosevelt Estate in the picturesque Hudson River Valley, in Hyde Park, New York. Among the sites that are incorporated into the workshops are: FDR’s home, Springwood, along with Top Cottage, FDR’s hilltop retreat; Val-Kill, the home of Eleanor Roosevelt; and of course the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museum—designed and conceived by FDR himself as our nation’s first Presidential Library.
The workshops will pair K-12 educational professionals with world renowned scholars of the Roosevelt Era. These include Professors David Kennedy, Warren Kimball, Anthony Badger, and Alan Henrickson.
Applications are accepted from classroom teachers in public, private, parochial, and charter schools, as well as home-schooling parents. Other K-12 school personnel, including administrators, substitute teachers, classroom paraprofessionals, and librarians, are also eligible to participate, subject to available space.
Application forms and more information are available at www.feri.org.
