Victoria (Masterpiece/PBS)

Season 2 begins January 14. "In 1837, a diminutive, neglected teenager is crowned Queen Victoria, navigates the scandal, corruption, and political intrigues of the Court, and soon rises to become the most powerful woman in the world. Victoria stars Jenna Coleman (also played Doctor Who) as Queen Victoria in a highly anticipated series that follows the drama of the candid, spirited monarch who was perhaps the first woman to seem to have it all."

Decoding the Civil War (Huntington Libraries/NHPRC consortium)

The U.S. Civil War still captures, as does Abraham Lincoln’s presidency, the imagination and passion of young and old. While perpetually fascinating, with all we know and have learned, there is still much to discover with new materials, new stories. Decoding the Civil War is an online resource for multiple grade levels that invites students to examine actual telegram messages and place them in social and historical context.
Integrating portraiture into the classroom provides exciting opportunities to connect students with history, biography, visual art, and many other subjects. The Summer Teacher Institute will take a broad look at the Portrait Gallery’s collection. Participants will learn how to “read” portraiture and use the art as a springboard into a more in-depth discussion about biography and history. Teachers in grades kindergarten–12 may apply as individuals or as part of a team. Priority will be given to social studies, English/language arts, and visual arts teachers.
Deadline: 
4/10/2018
