Free Pass for Teachers to New & Improved Colonial Williamsburg

I was imprisoned briefly in the summer of 2004.
Just received a great offer for history and other social studies teachers via email:
When was the last time you experienced Colonial Williamsburg?  We promise it is different – and even better – than you remember.  This summer, Colonial Williamsburg has a special offer for teachers – free admission on select dates, with discounted rates for friends or family.  On July 22, 23 or 24; Aug. 12, 13 or 14; or Oct. 7, 8 or 9, teachers can pick up their free pass at Colonial Williamsburg’s Visitor Center.

Kick off your Colonial Williamsburg even before you arrive through RevQuest, an interactive alternate reality game that lets you discover the secrets of the revolution, online and onsite.  Colonial Williamsburg’s Historic Trades will give you a look into craftsmanship that boasts incredible attention to detail through skilled artisans at more than 20 locations in the Historic Area, from the brickyard and the milliner to the blacksmith and the print shop. Every morning, part of the Historic Area transforms into Revolutionary City – live street theater depicting the challenges and triumphs of forming a new nation.  And to conclude the day, robust evening programs with schedule changes nightly provide unforgettable entertainment.

There is no better place to watch history come alive and become part of the story yourself than Colonial Williamsburg.  New programs have begun this summer, including many exciting tours and performances that encourage visitor participation.  After experiencing all that Colonial Williamsburg has to offer, you’ll leave with new ways to think about history and methods to help you teach it more effectively.
