Fellowship in American History

This northeastern Manhattan school district will use a research-based professional development model combining knowledge, resources, methodology and collegiality to train seventh and eighth grade teachers. Groups of experienced and new teachers will attend lectures and methods workshops and work together with project staff to enhance the content knowledge and teaching skills of all participants. They will devise tests and rubrics to measure student performance in history and they will help revise and strengthen the district’s history curriculum. The partners are Hunter College and the Museum of the City of New York.
