Teaching American History

In collaboration with Northern Arizona University and Arizona K-12 Learning Center, the district will serve as a model development and implementation site for teaching American history. Resulting curricula and instructional strategies will be made available statewide in an effort to maintain consistency across classrooms. Issues important to the large population of Native American students served by the district will be integrated into the curriculum. Teachers in grades 4-12 from all schools will participate in task forces and summer academies addressing standards-based American history content, research-based instructional strategies, and performance assessment. Supportive activities include mentoring and coaching, establishment of a district network of history teachers, Close-up teacher training in Washington, DC, site visits with students, establishment of history clubs, and website access to best practices information.
