End of the Week Project
As a summary activity for the week, teachers complete a culminating project in which they apply the content knowledge and research skills they have gained throughout the week. The elementary program integrates final project research throughout the program, while the middle and high school participants are create their own project. The End of Week Project provides teachers the opportunity to begin processing how the content, strategies, and resources can bridge the gap between history and civics to promote social studies skills at all grade levels. The goal of Colonial Williamsburg’s Teacher Institute is to bring history to life in classrooms around the country.
We also ask teachers to reflect on the experiences they have had, specifically regarding what it means to be a United States Citizen. As you explore the development of American citizenship, how might you bring the message back to your students? Come prepared to discuss your perspective and thoughts on the topic.
