Teaching American History in Delaware

The Indian River School and Christina School Districts are partnering with the University of Delaware, Hagley Museum, Historical Society of Delaware, and Delaware State Archives to enhance teacher knowledge of traditional American history and history teaching strategies. The project will provide 6 week-long summer institutes held at two centers of the University of Delaware, and 16 2-day American history workshops held during the school year. Lesson plans and historical documents will be shared with teachers throughout the state through team-teaching, mentoring, and the project website. Content includes presentations on: "The Economic Foundations of a Free Society," "The Constitutional Foundations for Ordered Liberty," "Thomas Jefferson and the Rights of Man,' and "Abraham Lincoln, Slavery, and the Coming of the Civil War."
