Participant's Guide to the Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute 2014

Daily Sessions


Throughout the week, there will be daily sessions set aside for you to meet with a Colonial Williamsburg Master Teacher to debrief the day’s content and strategies and help you brainstorm ways to design curricula for your classroom based on the day’s experiences. The Master Teacher will reinforce teaching strategies presented during the day and offer lessons and strategies they have successfully used with their students in the classroom.

Master Teachers will act as a liaison between you and the Institute staff, participate in all activities and lessons during the week, provide directions on how to get to places within the Historic Area, and offer suggestions for good teaching materials.


Master Teachers will distribute, and later collect, evaluation forms. Your comments and suggestions are very important to us for maintaining the quality of the Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute. Individual evaluations should be completed and turned in every two days. Please take the opportunity to let us know how we are doing.
