The Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt Institute is pleased to invite applications to an NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for School Teachers. Two sessions will be offered: July 13-18 and July 20-25. Undertaken from the vantage point of FDRís beloved Hyde Park, New York, in the picturesque Hudson River Valley, this Workshop will offer teachers a unique perspective on Rooseveltís response to the Great Depression and World War II, with a special emphasis on how FDRís relationship to his home community influenced his thinking about national policy and Americaís role in the world. Among the sites that will be incorporated in the workshop are: FDRís home, Springwood, along with Top Cottage, FDRís hilltop retreat; Val Kill, the home of Eleanor Roosevelt; and of course the Franklin D. Roosevelt Presidential Library and Museumódesigned and conceived by FDR himself as our nationís first Presidential Library. We invite you to join us as we examine FDRís response to the world crisis and the transformative nature of his leadership during these critical years.
