A Rising People: Benjamin Franklin and the Americans

Two one-week Landmarks workshops for eighty school teachers to explore Benjamin Franklin's influence on the American people through the sites and environs of eighteenth-century Philadelphia.

Hosted by the School of Humanities at Penn State Harrisburg in partnership with a coalition of historic sites and organization in Philadelphia, this grant will sponsor two one-week workshops for K-12 teachers, to be held in the summer of 2011. Teachers will be chosen from a national competition, and will be exposed to cutting-edge interdisciplinary humanities scholarship as well as unparalleled access to some of the most significant sites in American History.
