For Teachers & Students

Here, we offer information on the life and times of James Monroe. Teachers can find resources and ideas for incorporating Monroe into school units under Lesson Plans. For students, we present Monroe’s career in detail in the Chronology section, and give suggestions for related websites and other resources in the Research section.

Visitors can also find information on the University of Mary Washington’s publishing project, the Papers of James Monroe.

Our younger visitors should be sure to check out the Young Patriots’ Corner for fun facts and a variety of games and crafts you can do at home.

For the more serious researcher, the Collections page offers information on scholarly use of the museum’s holdings.
