Don't miss new videos under Lessons Learned in the TAH Grants section of the Clearinghouse. These segments feature historians and educators talking about what's worked in TAH grants, and many of their ideas could apply to other professional development venues.

Among the videos you'll see Tom Thurston, Education Director of the Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance, and Abolition discussing Drop-in Model vs. Cohort Model: Pros and Cons and concluding that it's possible to invite outside teacher participation in TAH sessions while encouraging and maintaining the close community of the core training cohort.

In some programs, teachers work as historians and as educators.

Andy Mink, director of outreach and education for the Virgina Center for Digital History gives examples of professional development that could transfer to other educator training venues: teachers take on the work of historians in connection with the project Television News of the Civil Rights Era, 1950-1970.

Mark Tebeau, associate professor of history at Cleveland State University, discusses Teachers Researching History, pointing to a program engaging teachers both in research and in creating an oral history project. "That makes them historians," he states. "We have to create the project, and what we do is then ask the teachers to help us create the project."

Check back from time to time—and we'll keep you posted as we add new audiovisual components.
