Civil War Washington Teacher Fellowship
Join up to 25 teachers to learn about Abraham Lincoln, Frederick Douglass and Washington during the Civil War!
This week long program is a collaboration between Ford's Theater, Lincoln's Cottage, Tudor Place, the Frederick Douglass National Historic Site, and several other local historic sites and groups. The program seeks to pair content about the Civil War Washington with a variety of techniques for teaching the history.
Come away from your week in Washington familiar with: an array of virtual tours, the oratory skills to get your students on their feet performing speeches by Lincoln and Douglass; comfortable taking students on content-driven experiential learning adventures; and excited about using classroom drama to help historic characters come alive!
Session I, (grades 3-12, Local Area) June 23-28
Session II, (National Teachers) July 14-19

Visitors to Frederick Douglass' Cedar Hill home in Washington, D.C. would enjoy a game of checkers with him in his East Parlor, the fanciest and most public room in the house.
