Registration is open for VMHC’s Weinstein Properties Teachers Institute, a pair of week-long, in-person programs available to private and public school teachers of any grade.

The first, the Story of Virginia Institute, will run from July 8-12. It aims to help K-12 teachers examine the role of Virginia history in their classrooms.

The second session focuses on understanding Virginia’s vast history from a geographical and cultural perspective. It runs July 22-26 and centers around VMHC’s “Our Commonwealth” exhibition.

Both programs include stipends for all participants. Registration costs $50 but will be refunded to participants at the end of the course. There are also a limited number of travel scholarships for teachers who live 75+ miles outside of Richmond.
