Interactive and Interdisciplinary WWI Teacher Workshops in 360 Minutes

These one-day workshops, hosted in 2019-2020 across the nation and sponsored by the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission, offered a blend of meaningful content and primary-source-focused methods for teaching WWI and its enduring impact. Educators learned to debunk common WWI misconceptions, how to teach beyond the Western Front and why we need to teach WWI now more than ever.

Open to 5-12th grade educators interested in integrating WWI into humanities, registration costs were covered with generous appreciation to the U.S. World War One Centennial Commission.
