During this workshop for Alabama educators the American Revolution Institute was joined by two of its talented master teachers from Alabama to introduce the free resources, materials and opportunities we offer to K-12 educators to assist them in communicating the Revolution’s achievements and legacy to their students, including:

  • our online strategy game Revolutionary Choices,
  • our digital textbook Why America is Free,
  • our lesson plan series developed by Institute staff and teachers from across the country,
  • our week-long residential master teacher seminar in Washington, DC (and other regional professional development opportunities),
  • our Teaching Associates program,
  • our Collections for the Classroom database highlighting items from our library and museum,
  • our classroom videos, and
  • our Continental Army and Revolutionary War at Sea traveling trunks.
