Program Purpose


NEH-funded institutes are professional development programs that convene K-12 educators or higher education faculty from across the nation in order to deepen and enrich their understanding of a variety of topics in the humanities and enrich their capacity for effective scholarship and teaching.

This institute will gather 25 teacher participants who will work on the subject of slavery and equality under the Constitution. You will hear talks, participate in discussions, and visit historic sites. During the institute, you will develop a lesson plan to bring these important subjects to your own students.
