What We Do

Are you sick of flip charts, boring lectures and stuffy classrooms? Are you tired of 2 by 4 teaching (2 covers of a book and 4 walls of a classroom)? Then take the field with the Living History Education Foundation's master teachers and enjoy courses that literally "come alive." As an added bonus, you will have all expenses paid for by the Living History Education Foundation (motels, meals, site fees, etc.). Experience morale boosting courses and gain knowledge and expertise which you can use with your students immediately. The only cost to you is the graduate or in-service fee. Isn't it about time you had fun in your education career?
