How will this experience benefit you personally? Your fellow educators?

“I served last year and really enjoyed the experience. I felt I grew as an educator and I was able to take meaningful information back to my students and colleagues.”

In what ways is the American Civil War relevant to you and your students today?

“By studying the literature of the time and contrasting it to the ever-changing landscape of Virginia (the monuments, for example) and the ongoing struggle for equality still, it provides great opportunities for writing and class discussion.”
