Primarily Virginia: MeadWestvaco Online Teachers Institute (Summer 2018)

Primarily Virginia is an online course designed for teachers to explore Virginia’s past by examining objects and primary sources. These pieces of the past will be used as a lens to examine different historical eras in Virginia history. All course work is to be completed through the course website, and there are no required in-person class meetings. This summer's theme will focus on stories that connect to Triumph & Tragedy in History, the 2019 National History Day theme.

The course consists of a series of six modules. In each module, a series of activities will allow the participants to engage in the historical inquiry process, and provide opportunities to examine how the course content can be applied in the classroom. Each module will require teachers to write plans for their classroom and to respond to the postings from the other class participants.

Primarily Virginia’s online format has been designed for asynchronous work, allowing K-12 teachers from around Virginia to access the resources of the Virginia Historical Society and the Library of Congress from their homes and schools. Upon completion of the course, participating teachers will receive up to 45 re-certification points, along with a membership to the Virginia Historical Society.

The course is offered free of charge, thanks to the generous support of the MeadWestvaco Corporation and the MeadWestvaco Foundation.

Primarily Virginia is limited to 30 students and will launch on July 9, 2018. Please register by July 6, 2018. For additional information, please contact Hailey House, 804-342-9689, hhouse@VirginiaHistory.org.
