George Washington - Lessons & Legacy (split session): (Session 1) When They See Us: Beyond Whips and Chains They Had Names; (Session 2) Be Washington!

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

This will be a split session between two teachers who attended George Washington Teacher Institutes at Mount Vernon. Participants will learn about how to approach difficult subjects, particularly the institution of American slavery, with students by guiding them to look beyond stereotypical images and instead delve into real stories, such as those of the enslaved people who lived at Mount Vernon during George Washington's presidency. Participants will also learn about Be Washington, a first-person interactive leadership experience. With this online tool, students can face the challenges that Washington faced as both commander of the Continental Army as well as president of the United States. How would their responses compare to the Commander in Chief? Could you Be Washington?
