Education Programs Overview

Whether you are a teacher looking for a way to bring your reading and writing lessons to life, a true “Twainiac” who has read his books a million times or are picking up these American classics again for the first time since childhood, we have fun and educational programs for you!

Every year, our Mark Twain experts present lively and informative discussions here at The Mark Twain House & Museum and in the community at schools, libraries, book clubs, social groups, corporate meetings and more.

The Mark Twain House & Museum is pleased to announce that it has joined the Hartford Courant’s News in Education (NIE) program!

The NIE is an ONLINE RESOURCE that allows teachers and students to easily access a rich array of instructional content specifically designed to address Connecticut's new COMMON CORE STANDARDS and enhance learning in school!

Each month, The Mark Twain House & Museum will post a new, and fascinating primary source reading related to the life and legacy of America’s most celebrated author. Educators and students will also be provided with suggestions for further study that enriches the use of this resource in their classrooms.
