There are so many reasons to teach about the White House! This teacher institute will provide a basic overview of the functions of the White House as a home, office, museum, and national symbol. Using primary source documents, teachers will explore several ways that the White House can be utilized in the classroom. Join us this summer to learn about the resources and programs available at the David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History, operated by the White House Historical Association, and at the White House Visitor Center, operated by the National Park Service. Learn about the White House collection and role as a museum with White House curator Bill Allman and hear stories about the First Families at home in the White House from former White House curator Betty Monkman.
