Teaching American History

Montana State University's Department of History and Philosophy, Museum of the Rockies and Native American Studies Program, the National Council for History Education, and the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory will partner with the district in a professional development program for K-12 teachers. Addressing themes of cultural contact and the American republic through colloquia and summer institutes, the program covers the Lewis and Clark Expedition, national expansion in the 19th Century, and the American West in the 20th Century. Underserved and at-risk middle and high school students are a major focus, along with K-4th grade students who traditionally receive little history training.
