End of the Week Project
As a summary activity for the week, teachers complete a culminating project to apply the knowledge and skills they have gained throughout the week. We ask teachers to reflect on the experiences they have had, specifically in regard to their thoughts about what it means to be a United States Citizen and how they might bring that message back to their students. The goal of Colonial Williamsburg's Teacher Institute is to bring history to life in classrooms around the country. The end of week project gives teachers the opportunity to begin to process how the content, strategies and resources provided can bridge the gap between history and civics to promote social studies skills at all grade levels.
