A two-week school teacher institute for thirty participants on major themes in colonial American history from 1600 to 1775.

The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History seeks $108,103 for a two-week summer institute for thirty high school teachers on colonial American history at Yale University. In lectures, field trips, and readings, participants will both receive a broad overview of the era and explore the day-to-day lives of ordinary Americans. John Demos, the Samuel Knight Professor of American History emeritus at Yale who has led two NEH seminars and five Gilder Lehrman seminars on colonial America, will direct the proposed seminar. With its extensive holdings in early American documents and artifacts, its proximity to colonial-era historic sites, and its first-rate facilities, Yale is the ideal setting for a colonial American history seminar. Having directed 211 weeklong seminars for teachers since 1994, the Gilder Lehrman Institute hopes to provide a more rigorous academic experience for participants in the proposed seminar.
