Nearly 100 years ago on the 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month the guns and cannons along the Western Front stopped firing.
To help commemorate the centennial of Armistice Day and to honor the sacrifices made during WWI, VGA, in partnership with the Teaching with Primary Source Eastern Region, is offering a 1-day Teaching with Primary Sources Symposium. This symposium will be held on November 8th in Charlottesville, VA, from 8:45 Am to 3:30 PM.
Free lesson plans and software will be provided to each participant. Each attendee will also receive a $50 stipend for travel support. Registration is limited to the first 30 registrants.
