Classroom instruction will take place all of the first week, June 6 through June 10 and also on Monday, June 13. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday June 14-16 will be an on-site internship at a local institution, where you can ask all the questions you want and put your classroom instruction to good use. Friday, June 17 will be a wrap-up day, held back at the Georgia Archives.
