The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation’s ENLIGHT™ online learning program uses technology and best practices in education to make the Foundation’s multimedia museum resources accessible to audiences near and far. Designed for lifelong learners seeking new challenges as well as teachers looking to expand their professional skills, ENLIGHT™ aims to combine the learner’s passion for education with Colonial Williamsburg’s commitment to history and citizenship. New and upcoming online learning opportunities will be posted soon.
These sample lesson plans or activities were created by teachers who completed Colonial Williamsburg's online teacher professional development.
Note: While not produced by the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, these plans are the work of students who completed a Foundation-produced distance-learning course.
