The Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst, Massachusetts, will host an NEH Landmarks of American History and Culture Workshop for Schoolteachers in July 2011.
Landmarks Workshops provide K-12 educators from across the United States the opportunity 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 evidence.
The Emily Dickinson Museumís workshop, "Emily Dickinson: Person, Poetry, and Place," will be offered twice, July 10-15 and July 17-22. Participants will attend lectures, participate in hands-on activities, tour the Museum and other local sites related to Emily Dickinson, and develop curriculum ideas for their classrooms back home. More information about the workshop, eligibility requirements, and application procedures is available at www.emilydickinsonmuseum.org/nehworkshop. The application deadline is March 1.
