Teaching American History Program

The Lane Education Service District, in collaboration with the Oregon State History Society, Oregon Department of Education, Portland State University, Oregon High Desert Museum, the University of Oregon Center for Advanced Technology in Education, and Lane County historical museums and historical sites will (1) develop and deliver a program of professional development in teaching American history to 80 K-12 teachers who will then support 320 of their colleagues; (2) build a sustainable network that will provide continuing history education and professional development for teachers throughout the state of Oregon. Practicing professional historians will provide the teachers with content instruction, demonstrations in best practices, instruction in using primary source materials and objects in classrooms, and instruction in using and integrating educational technology.
