Teaching American History Project: A Collaborative to Enhance the Teaching and Learning of American History

The Region IV Education Service Center serves 7 counties and 54 school districts in southeast Texas. The project aims to: improve teachers' knowledge of history content, identify effective teaching strategies; train teachers to use technology, create a corps of teacher-mentors, create a forum for teacher interaction with professional historians and museum professionals, and produce online resources. The project will serve teachers from elementary, middle school, and high school levels will be served, with priority given to teachers from schools that scored poorly on the statewide assessment tests in history. The partners are the University of Houston and the Houston Museum of Fine Arts.
