Sure, Elsa! I would start with NEH and Gilder Lehrman and investigate other existing grants.  Also, collaborating with local colleges is a good way to bridge the project with a larger lens. College professors and department chairs are often open to collaborating with elementary and secondary teachers (example or TAH; focus on American history). I think there is money out there for lots of great things, but teachers do not have the time to scout them out. TOSAs and other folks at the district level may be able to to the investigative work needed to find the funds.

Good idea, Ashley. Often professional development gets lost in too many concepts. I am a fan of efficiency and focus.

I agree, Chris. After all, the kids are why we are here. :-)
