Transatlantic Teachers Programme 2012
We are delighted to announce that the United States Embassy is funding the second year of the Transatlantic Teachers Programme, delivered in partnership with the University of Virginia. This year, the topic will be Nations in Conflict: World War I and World War II.
Ten British teachers will have the opportunity to work in partnership with American teachers through a virtual learning environment during the spring and summer terms of 2012. They will carry out their own research on the two World Wars and work towards creating original learning resources based on documents from the collections of The National Archives and the University of Virginia. Following approval by an editorial board, these resources will be published on The National Archives website. Have a look at the resources produced by last year's teachers to see what you could expect to achieve on this course.
American and British teachers will carry out further collaborative work on a study tour to France and Belgium at the beginning of the summer holiday: 21 - 28 July 2012.
All of the participants' expenses for the course will be paid, including travel and accommodation for the seminar days and the summer study tour, as well as the cost of a supply teacher to cover one day of teaching, for 23 March.
The virtual classroom and virtual learning environment will be freely available to participants through the internet; no special equipment will be required. If you want to see how the virtual classroom works, come along to one of our free taster sessions for teachers.
Applications are now open. Please read the guidance and fill in the application form, returning it to email@example.com by 19:00 on Monday 19 December.
