Fall "Into the Depths of History" at the 2022 National Teacher Institute in Mobile, Alabama! 

Our annual National Teacher Institute brings together educators from all over the world. This three-and-a-half-day event includes breakout sessions, workshops, lectures, and tours from some of the leading experts in the history and education fields.

Educators will be immersed in a friendly, fun, and engaging learning environment, where they will be able to network with other educators, learn more about the historical topics that they teach in their classroom while acquiring new and innovative teaching methods. Our National Teacher Institute is more than just methodology, it's about making you a better, more well-rounded educator. We hope that you will leave the Institute with a better understanding of your subject matter, a passion for history education, and lifelong friendships.  

This event is free but does require a $100, refundable, deposit placed to reserve your spot. At the conclusion of the event, educators can apply for continuing education credits, provided by the American Battlefield Trust, and can request a refund of their deposit if they attend the event.

Please join us July 21-24, 2022, in Mobile, AL.
