Teaching American History

This southern California district is will provide professional development to 90 of the 120 history teachers in the district. They will partner with Occidental College, the Constitutional Rights Foundation, the Autry Museum, the Smithsonian Museum of History, and the Huntington Library. The teachers will learn how to gauge their students' work as indicators of the success of the content and teaching strategies. The teachers will get hands-on curricular presentation training that will better equip them to reach and engage their students. The teachers will work on research projects and learn methods to stimulate high-quality research efforts from their students that will be directed toward participation in National History Day.
