The Faces of Freedom: Teaching American History Through Personal Narrative

This school district will collaborate with two nearby districts and partner with Princeton University, the Smithsonian Museum of American History, the IBM Learning Village, and the National Council for History Education. The project will provide professional development to 180 high school teachers in 3 cohorts of 60 each. Different groups will visit various historical sites and receive training there as well. University teachers will provide the content, while mentor teachers will help devise and carry out customized learning strategies to put the content across to the students. The objective will be to integrate the new content learning into the core curriculum.
