STEP (Supplying Teachers with Education and Preparation) into History

The district will partner with Georgetown University, National Underground Railroad Museum, Teachers' Curriculum Institute (TCI), Kentucky State History Museum, Colonial Williamsburg Living History Museum, Bourbon County Historical Society, and Central Kentucky Exceptional Education Cooperative to provide a tiered professional development program in American history teaching for pre- and in-service K-12 teachers. The project provides workshops, summer institutes, mentoring/coaching, and web-based American history lesson plans along with memberships in the National Council for History Education and chartering of Junior Historical Societies in each school. The district will use the History Alive! Approach. Secondary teachers' project curriculum includes: Coming of Age 1890-1920, Roaring 20s and Great Depression, U.S. in World War II, Cold War, Civil Rights Movement, and Contemporary American Society.
