"School House to the White House" Teacher Workshop at the Truman Library

Just passing along some information about a great opportunity to Kansas City area history teachers - or anyone that can make it the Truman Library on February 7, 2009. I plan on sending in my application later today.

Beginning on February 7th and lasting through August 30th the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum will host the National Archives traveling exhibit, "School House to White House: The Education of Presidents". Journey back to the schooldays of the 20th-century presidents through photographs, archival materials, and museum objects revealing fascinating detail about the children who would one day grow up to be President of the United States.

In conjunction with this exhibit, a teacher workshop will be held from 9:00 - 3:00 on Saturday, February 7th. Educators from four Presidential Libraries (Hoover, Truman, Eisenhower, and Clinton) will share information and teaching activities for use in the classroom. The cost for this one day workshop is $25.00 and includes a lunch. The workshop is limited to 50 participants. You must go to this Truman Library website education page to download and print the registration.

This form with your $25.00 payment must then be mailed in.
