Important Information

The Seat of War and Peace 2016 and 2017 Programs are funded through a research grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services, enabling Ford’s Theatre Society to offer these programs at no cost to participants. In return, over the course of the following school year, teachers will assist in collecting research data for Ford’s Theatre Society and The George Washington University School of Education by providing written feedback and video of classroom teaching, contributing to monthly virtual meetings, and sharing related teaching and learning practices with one another and the greater online educator community.
