Between Columbus and Jamestown: Spanish St. Augustine

Two one-week summer workshops for 100 school teachers examining Spanish St. Augustine in the context of American colonial history.

The two weeklong "Landmarks of American History" seminars outlined in this proposal bring K-12 teachers from across the county to St. Augustine, the oldest European settlement in North America. The seminars bring together the historical, archaeological and architectural resources of this nearly 500-year-old city with the leading scholars of the Spanish colonial period. The seminars are organized by the Florida Humanities Council in cooperation with the St. Augustine Historical Society, the Historic St. Augustine Research Institute, and Flagler College. Occurring June 18-30, 2007, the seminars will provide teachers with: - a comparative look at the British and Spanish colonial experience, - an examination of how colonial Spanish Florida fits into the larger narrative of the first 250 years of American history, and - an opportunity to use primary documents, historical archives, and national landmarks to expand and enrich their understanding of history.
