Teacher Seminars

Upcoming Opportunities for Teachers

The National WWI Museum and Memorial partners with exceptional institutions to offer learning opportunities for teachers.


Please note: World War I and Its Consequences in July has been cancelled by the Gilder Lehrman Institute. Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.


World War I and its Consequences - July 12 -17, 2020

In partnership with the National WWI Museum and Memorial, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History’s Teacher Seminar “World War I and its Consequences” will examine the history of World War I, with emphasis on its origins, scope and consequences. Through lectures, discussions and analysis of historical texts, novels and films, the instructors and participants will assess the revolution in violence between 1914 and 1918 and the obliteration of the distinction between military and civilian targets. Seminar participants will also explore the failed peace settlement and patterns of remembrance. In many ways, the catastrophe of the Great War set in motion forces that not only shaped the 20th century, but are still present today.

This six-day seminar, held July 12 -17, 2020 in Kansas City, Mo., will be directed by Dr. Jay Winter, Charles J. Stille Professor of History Emeritus, Yale University, with additional sessions by Gilder Lehrman Master Teacher and National WWI Museum and Memorial Collections and Education staff.



 Congratulations to all of the 2019 Gilder Lehrman Institute Teacher Seminar “World War I and Its Aftermath” participants! We loved hosting you in July and appreciate all of your hard work.
