Submission will include summary data on the field testing of the lesson.Potential lesson ideas include, but are not limited to:
• Create a lesson designed to engage students in identifying the characteristics of the American Spirit.• Create a lesson designed to link a Patriot Week theme such as equality or the rule of law to real world experiences of your students.• Create a lesson designed to explore the purpose of flags and then have students investigate the flags used during Patriot Week.• Create a lesson using an instructional strategy such as Socratic Seminar to analyze vital documents suggested at the Patriot Week website. • Create a lesson in which students investigate a significant historical figure connected to Patriot Week and select a way to share what they have learned.• Create a lesson in which students design a presentation explaining the purpose of Patriot Week and its themes.
• Lessons may be submitted anytime between September 11, 2021 and December 17, 2021.• Following submission lessons will be reviewed by the Patriot Week Education Team. Those accepted by the team will be posted on the Patriot Week website and the stipend issued. Please note that a lesson may be returned with suggestions for changes and directions for re-submittal.

The Patriot Week Foundation achieved its 501(c)(3) status in December 2012 and has moved forward by building a sustainable, nonpartisan organization. Currently staffed with an Operations Manager and Education Consultant, the Patriot Week Foundation will be adding to its complement of talent shortly.
This unique, historically grounded, non-partisan approach is desperately needed in our toxic political environment. In no small measure, the fate of the nation depends on it.
