Give Me History Title I Program
Since 2009, our “Give Me History!” Title I Program has served over 35,000 elementary and middle school students and teachers in Richmond metro area public schools by providing a free educational program at Historic St. John’s Church.
“Give Me History!” provides Standards of Learning-based history lessons that give economically disadvantaged children in Title I schools an educational boost. Title I is a federal designation given to schools that have a high concentration of economically disadvantaged students who are at risk of failing academically.
“Give Me History!” provides an educational experience at no cost to schools, students, teachers or parents. The program includes the following:
Free guided tours by costumed interpreters of Historic St. John’s Church
Free reenactments of the Second Virginia Convention by professional actors in period costumes
Free educational materials and lesson plans available for download prior to each field trip
Free transportation from schools to and from Historic St. John’s Church – up to a 60 mile round trip and 3 hours drive time maximum.
