Teaching American History Program

The rural district in western Massachusetts works with a consortium of six nearby districts. The partners are the Pocumtuck Valley Memorial Association and the Franklin County Collaborative for Professional Development. 225 teachers, teacher trainers, and district coordinators will participate in seminars on major American history topics, as well as in small group training at school sites. They will examine and analyze primary documents and will integrate these documents and other historical materials into their classroom instruction.
