Teacher
Workshops 2024

Overview & Goals

Teacher Workshops here at the National Medal of Honor Heritage Center are aimed at introducing both elementary and secondary-level educators to the Medal of Honor, the six character values associated with the Medal, and the BIG stories of Medal of Honor and Space Medal of Honor Recipients. Focus is placed on the human experience during our workshops; war is simply the context in which many of these individuals served throughout our nation’s history.

Educational Approach

Chattanooga’s rich historical narrative includes the compelling story of Andrews’ Raiders and their mission during the Civil War which led to the city’s national recognition as the “Birthplace of the Medal of Honor.” The Medal of Honor is our nation’s highest military honor for valor, and through the powerful stories of these ordinary people who accomplished extraordinary things, history is brought to life along the Heritage Center’s gallery timeline.

Offering a Place-Based Educational (PBE) approach to learning, the National Medal of Honor Heritage Center leverages our local history, geography, cultures, and experiences to engage students in the learning process outside the traditional classroom. This Fellowship will reach teachers and students across three states as our instructional materials and lessons will reflect state standards spanning Kindergarten through 12th grade levels and multiple content areas.
