For Educators, By Educators

NWHM's Unique Collaboration with K-12 Educators

Each summer, the National Women's History Museum invites K-12 educators to participate in the Museum's unique "For Educators, By Educators" classroom resource development initiative. Educators collaborate with Museum staff to create K-12 lesson plans that help learners explore women's impacts on society. All resources developed through this initiative are included in the Museum's catalog of online Classroom Resources, which are available free of charge. In 2024, "For Educators, by Educators" is sponsored in part by the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Eastern Region Program, coordinated by Waynesburg University.  

Please note that any K-12 educator is welcome to submit a proposal, and there are no prerequisites required for acceptance. Proposals will be reviewed based on their alignment to priority topics for the Museum and the Museum's mission and to make sure there is diversity of topics, grade levels, and techniques included in the lesson plan pool.
