History is Monumental

History is Monumental links local Savannah monuments with broad events in America's history with the help of project partners including History Alive!, Armstrong Atlantic State University, and the Georgia Historical Society. Designed to prepare teachers to deliver content-rich, creative and motivational lessons, establish a U.S. history mentoring program, and increase educators' technological skills, the project provides American history teachers in grades 4, 5, and 8 with summer institutes, a graduate-level survey course in American history, best practices, special history sessions, immersion days, evening lecture series, and creation of an on-line archive of primary source documents. The overall goal is a knowledgeable citizenry with a clear understanding of U.S. history and the principles enunciated in the Declaration of Independence, Federalist Papers, and Constitution.
