The Oklahoma Foundation for Excellence is seeking applicants for teacher fellowships to the 2013 Colonial Williamsburg Teacher Institute.
The program is open to fifth-grade teachers, resource teachers, librarians or gifted and talented program teachers who plan to teach U.S. history in 2013-14.
Each fellowship recipient will receive an all-expense-paid trip to Williamsburg, Va., as well as a $300 stipend for classroom materials.
While at Colonial Williamsburg - the world's largest living history museum - teachers will have the opportunity to meet character interpreters of 18th-century people, be immersed in early American history through hands-on activities and re-enactments of historic events and visit historic colonial and battle sites nearby.
Participants are asked to share materials, skills and experiences with fellow teachers through two workshops or in-service programs upon their return from the institute.
Fellowship applications must be postmarked by March 1.
