Landmarks of American History and Culture

The Landmarks of American History and Culture program supports a series of one-week residential, virtual, and combined format workshops across the nation that enhance and strengthen how K-12 educators, higher education faculty, and humanities professionals study sites, areas, or regions of historic and cultural significance and incorporate place-based teaching and learning in the humanities.

Each Landmarks workshop must include two separate sessions of five to seven days each for two different groups of participants. The content, presenters, site visits, activities, and readings should be substantively the same for each session. 

You can offer Landmarks workshops in the following formats:

• Residential: All participants attend for the duration of the workshop at the host site.

• Virtual: All participants attend for the duration of the workshop using an online platform. This can include synchronous and asynchronous sessions.

• Combined Format: All participants attend a portion of the workshop online and a portion of the workshop at the host site. Online and residential sessions occur at different times, but participants attend the same format simultaneously. 

Landmarks now offers two grant program options: One for K-12 educators and one for higher education faculty and humanities professionals.
