Here are just a few comments from teachers who attended the 2012 Teacher Institute:
"I love this program! The preparation and presentation is beyond expectation! The presenters are professional yet fun and relaxed. The amount and quality of materials, lessons, and experiences is so much, I can barely take it all in. But it gives some broad perspectives and helpful tools in viewing and using/understanding history. Life changing! It’s a very rich and engaging program. It’s given me an enthusiasm about this period in history, and a desire to more fully integrate art with social studies. It made everything come alive."
"Nothing can substitute for the “real” experience that I have gained from CWTI. The passion of all of the people involved is contagious, and will be brought back to my classroom. Thank you for everything."
"Thank you for a wonderful week. This is an experience I will remember for the rest of my life. The experiences I have had this week will impact [my] students for years to come . . . [and] make my teaching more authentic."
"My view on teaching about this period of time has changed. New ideas will allow me to be more creative and allow my students to experience some of the opportunities I have had during my time here. Thank you! It was so much more valuable than I had anticipated."
"This has been the best professional development experience of my career."
