What is the Regional Teacher Institute: LA?


  • Registration is now closed. Thank you to all of those who have registered. 


After ten years of hosting an Annual Teacher Institute, the Trust has decided to expand it's professional development offerings with smaller, regional institutes. The Regional Teacher Institute: Los Angeles, California is a two-day professional development for K-12 educators focused exclusively on the American Civil War and its relationship to Southern California.  The professional development is free, thanks to our generous donors, but space is limited to 50 attendees.  The available 50 spots are filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
