We the Teachers

Florida Teacher Programs Underway with Our Orlando Colloquium

Over this past weekend the Ashbrook Center unveiled it’s newest program Rediscovering America in Orlando, Florida. Middle and high school teachers from around the state convened at the picturesque Caribe Royale Resort to discuss and analyze Lincoln’s rhetoric and writings with Professor Eric Sands.

Teachers dissected the writings of Thomas Jefferson, Martin Luther King Jr, Alexander Stephens and referenced those influences upon Abraham Lincoln’s Peoria Speech, Gettysburg Address and Inaugural Speech. President Lincoln endured deep crises and his writings and musings reflected his struggle with the moral and legal issue of slavery, states’ rights and constitutional limits.

Over the weekend participants enjoyed profound conversation mixed with levity and laughter within the sessions, as well as into the after hours as well. Half of our teachers had not participated in an Ashbrook program and have already registered for other seminars and webinars.

Please visit our site often to see updates about joining in the conversation or participating in future Ashbrook events. We look forward to seeing you there.
