Two one-week, on-site workshops for seventy school teachers, on the history, art, and architecture of the United States Capitol.

Claremont Graduate University will conduct a two-week residential workshop for 70 middle and high school history teachers to study the U.S. Capitol, its art and architecture, and how it embodies the ideals and realities of our Nation's founding up to the Civil War. Under the project direction of Dr. Michael Uhlmann and Dr. Thomas Somma, the teachers will attend seminars and guided tours, led by experts in their fields. Five historians, one political scientist, one architectural historian, and three art historians will give lectures, lead seminars, and conduct onsite tours of the Capitol and selected museums. The teachers will be expected to read selected material from both primary and secondary sources and to introduce the workshop material into their classroom teaching.
