Teaching American History

The LEA works in partnership with Azusa Pacific University, the Historical Society of Southern California and the National Council for History Education to serve 138 local school teachers in grades 5,8,11, and 12. Features of the project include a series of spring and summer colloquia on various historical topics and themes and the development of specific lesson plans and history classes based on the learning that arises from these sessions. Academic historians will lead the sessions; learning specialists and master teachers will work with teachers to help them integrate the topics and themes into creative classroom presentations that engage student interest.
