Professional Development School Network for Learning and Teaching American History

The Lincoln-Way High School District in New Lenox, Illinois proposes to partner with faculty members from the Department of History and History and Social Sciences Education Program at Illinois State University, and McLean County Museum of History, in addition to newly hired American history teachers across the State of Illinois. The Network brings together American history teachers from eight Illinois high schools, and at the end of each year of the three-year project, nearly 300 teachers will have attended colloquia and an institute. During each of the three years, the program offers six all-day professional development colloquia, a one-week summer institute, and seven additional free-standing institute days throughout the year, all focused on the teaching and learning of American History.
