The National Park Service, Mississippi State University Libraries, and the Ulysses S. Grant Association announce the Second Annual Social Studies Teachers Summer Institute to be hosted at Mississippi State University’s Mitchell Memorial Library.
The purpose of the Institute, which will be held June 17 – 22, 2012, is to assist history/social studies educators in teaching the relevancy of the Civil War to students of the 21st century. The Institute offers teachers a broad spectrum of lectures by accomplished Civil War scholars plus on-site visits to Shiloh, Corinth, Jackson, and Vicksburg. Thanks to a grant provided by the National Park Service’s “Teaching History Through Civics,” participants will be provided with on-campus lodging, transportation to and from historic sites, and meals.
Applications for the week-long Institute will be accepted from public, private, and home-school teachers, and 30 participants will be selected on a first-come, first-served basis. Teachers selected for the Institute will be eligible to receive 4 Continuing Education Units through Mississippi State University at a cost of $20. No partial CEUs will be awarded.
