Thirteenth Annual Teacher Institute
July & August 2022 | Free
Join Library of Virginia staff members and guest speakers in this year’s two-day Teacher Institute. The thirteenth annual Brown Teacher Institute will focus on research and projects on local stories and histories that have typically been hidden or neglected from mainstream narratives. Institute participants will not only learn about the rich history of Virginia, but also enrich their understanding of how local stories fit into our national history. The Institute will offer tools, resources, and content to aid educators in teaching these local stories and hidden histories in the classroom. Teachers will explore how to use primary sources to enhance student learning and discover new digital resources.
This year’s institute is currently being planned as in-person.
Over the next two years, the Library of Virginia will host a teacher institute in each of the eight superintendent’s regions, and for the thirteenth annual Brown Teacher Institute (summer 2022), the Library will give preference to attendees from regions one, four, six, and eight.
Registration information for 2022 is coming soon!
Teachers must attend the entire Institute to receive a PD certificate.
Detailed schedule will be announced soon. Contact Elizabeth Klaczynski at email@example.com or Catherine Fitzgerald Wyatt at catherine.fitzgeraldwyatt.lva.virginia.gov with any questions.
