This professional development project to enhance American history teachers' content knowledge and methodological skills aims to foster active learning in history classrooms across North Carolina. The project includes 100 videotaped presentations by historians providing teachers in grades 8, 10 and 11 with access to views on the 10 eras specified by the National History Standards. Participants will also receive materials and intensive instruction in class preparation and lesson design via NCSSM distance learning broadcasts and on-campus workshops. The 5 partner LEAs represent low-income areas where students have traditionally scored lower than both state and national averages. Project partners include Duke University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, North Carolina Central University, North Carolina Museums of History and Art, and Learn NC. Learn NC's website will make materials available for American history teachers throughout the state.
