Teaching American History Program

This project partners four high-poverty school districts—Assumption, Lafourche, St. James and Terrebonne—with Nicholls State University to undertake systematic reform in American history that will provide new and veteran teachers with history content, methodology, and lasting resources through technology, an American History Network, and products of effective teaching that will serve as a model for the nation. The delivery model for this program is based on the Louisiana Systemic Initiative Program (LaSIP), a successful, ten-year systemic content delivery model funded by the National Science Foundation.
