The Marshall Immersion Workshop, July 21 – 25, 2014

The George C. Marshall International Center announces the 12th Annual Marshall Immersion Workshop, promising an exciting professional and collegial experience for high school-level American and modern European history teachers, and social studies supervisors. During the workshop, all expenses are paid during the workshop  to include food (excluding one evening during the workshop, and the night of arrival and departure from the workshop), 6 nights of lodging and transportation during the workshop,  and participants receive free materials, and re-certification points.

The workshop focuses on the far-reaching impact of the European Recovery Program (ERP) commonly known as “The Marshall Plan.”  The week-long program begins at Marshall’s museum home, the Marshall House, in Leesburg, VA. Using a series of primary documents from the Truman Library and the Marshall Archives, participants will gain a better understanding of the life and remarkable legacy of Secretary of State Marshall, specifically his significant role in securing the passage of the ERP.
