The White House and President's Park War of 1812 Symposium.

The White House and President's Park hosted a 5-day place-based learning symposium for teachers and students about the War of 1812.

A 5-day symposium titled "The British Are Coming...Again: Place-Based Learning for Teachers and Students on the War of 1812" used lectures, site visits, and various internet-based tools to introduce teachers and students to the War of 1812 and its lasting impacts.

And, since the war-ending "Treaty of Ghent" was signed in Belgium, the park coordinated with a Belgian non-profit to pair the participating U.S. classrooms with Belgian schools to have students develop joint media products related to the war.
