2018 Teacher Fellows

Congratulations to our Gilder Lehrman Institute Teacher Seminar participants!

The Museum and Memorial, with The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, offered World War I and Its Aftermath, a special week-long Teacher Seminar, in July 15-21, 2018.

This seminar featured Dr. Jay Winter, who examined the origins, scope and consequences of World War I with a particular emphasis on the revolution in violence between 1914 and 1918, the obliteration of the distinction between military and civilian targets, the failed peace settlement and the patterns of remembrance.

Participants chosen for this highly competitive program received a week of in-depth content knowledge shared by Dr. Winter, Gilder Lehrman Master Teacher Fellows and members of the Museum Collections and Education staff, with limited travel reimbursement, as well as hotel accommodations and meals.
