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. 

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.


  • The "For Educators, By Educators" program runs between May and August each year;
  • All resources must align with the C3 Framework for Social Studies Standards;
  • Approved participants will receive an honorarium of $300 per lesson plan (up to two lesson plans per a participant).


Information about 2024's For Educators, By Educators will be announced in the Spring!
