Calling all teachers in the Washington, DC metro area! The National Park Service and the Octagon Museum are looking for teachers to help develop a traveling trunk centered around the War of 1812, with objects, accompanying lessons plans, and activities for grades 4 - 8.

The trunk's content will focus on the War of 1812's impact on the Washington, DC area, highlighting specifically the experiences of African and Native Americas, the battlefront and the home front, the burning of Washington, DC, and the Treaty of Ghent. Participating teachers will receive copies of all lesson plans and early access to both the finished trunk and the 2014 week-long summer teacher symposium (with a stipend, grant-pending).

For more information about this exciting opportunity, contact Kathy Langley at 202-208-0747 or Katherine Somerville at 202-639-7616. 

Do not delay, reservations close December 18, 2013.
