The Oklahoman (Sunday) - - NEWS -

Ok­la­homa fifth- and eighth­grade teach­ers can ap­ply for a fel­low­ship to at­tend the 2018 Colo­nial Wil­liams­burg Teacher In­sti­tute in the re­stored cap­i­tal city of 18th­cen­tury Vir­ginia. Ap­pli­ca­tions must be post­marked by Feb. 1. The ses­sion for fifth-grade teach­ers will be June 3-8. The pro­gram was ex­panded last year to of­fer fel­low­ships for eighth-grade so­cial stud­ies teach­ers. Their ses­sion will be June 10-15. The Ok­la­homa Foun­da­tion for Ex­cel­lence co­or­di­nates the se­lec­tion of Ok­la­homa teach­ers to par­tic­i­pate in the renowned teacher in­sti­tute. While at Colo­nial Wil­liams­burg — the world’s largest liv­ing history mu­seum — teach­ers will be im­mersed in early Amer­i­can history through hands-on ac­tiv­i­ties and re-en­act­ments of historic events. Par­tic­i­pants also will meet daily with a peer fa­cil­i­ta­tor to dis­cuss in­ter­ac­tive teach­ing tech­niques and de­velop creative les­son plans based on their ex­pe­ri­ences.
