Teaching American History Improvement Collaborative Project

This project will serve teachers and students in Southeast Island School District as well as Sitka School District. None of the faculty from either district who teach American history is certified in history or social studies. In partnership with the National Council for History Education, the National Park Service, and Portland State University, the districts will implement activities including a cohesive, multi-component program for professional development in American history content, instruction, and standards-based assessment for teachers within the districts, and extend those benefits to faculty in other Alaska school districts through participation incentives and distance learning.
