The National Women’s History Museum is delighted to announce the 2024 cohort of educators participating in the “For Educators, By Educators” classroom resource development initiative. 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 compendium 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.  The NWHM is a Teaching with Primary Sources Consortium Member.

"The National Women's History Museum continues to be a trusted, go-to resource for our nation’s educators with unique programming like the 'For Educators, By Educators' initiative that partners directly with K-12 educators to create engaging lesson plans," says Dr. Lori Ann Terjesen, NWHM's vice president of education. "This unique collaboration ensures that our virtual resources are not only historically accurate but also meet the specific needs of teachers, while effectively inspiring students to learn about the remarkable contributions of women throughout history."

About the National Women's History Museum
Founded in 1996, the National Women’s History Museum (NWHM) is an innovative museum dedicated to uncovering, interpreting, and celebrating women’s diverse contributions to society. A renowned leader in women’s history education, the Museum brings to life the countless untold stories of women throughout history, and serves as a space for all to inspire, experience, collaborate, and amplify women’s impact—past, present, and future. We strive to fundamentally change the way women and girls see their potential and power.

The NWHM fills in major omissions of women in history books and K-12 education, providing scholarly content and educational programming for teachers, students, and parents. We reach more than four million visitors each year through our online content and education programming and, in March 2023, mounted our first physical exhibit at the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in downtown Washington, DC, We Who Believe in Freedom: Black Feminist DC. The Museum is a nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)3. Follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram and visit us at womenshistory.org.
