Teaching American History: A Model for University-Secondary School Cooperation

This Board of Cooperative Educational Services (BOCES) plans to serve 100 teachers in 15 school districts in its south central New York region; concentrating on teachers from 4 districts who have the highest percentage of at-risk students. The State University of New York (SUNY) at Binghamton and the Southern Tier Teacher Center Network are the district's partners. The SUNY history and education faculties are working jointly on this project along with school and district-based curriculum specialists. The content knowledge will be provided primarily in summer sessions, and the teaching strategies will come from afternoon sessions throughout the school year.
