Partnerships for Teaching American History

In cooperation with 3 other school districts, the Organization of American Historians, the National Council for History Education, East Carolina University, Teachers' Curriculum Institute, the National Humanities Center, National History Day, and Pitt County Historical Society, Pitt County Schools will develop a leadership team of 20 teachers per year in grades 9-12 to improve American history content knowledge and instructional strategies. Members attend summer institutes and conferences, develop lesson plans, learn how to become History Alive! trainers, participate in focus groups, and organize a regional symposium. Training also target teachers in grades 3-8 in an effort to build a stronger foundation for history learning. National History Day, Lenoir County Schools, Martin County Schools, and Beaufort County Schools are additional partners. Historians working with the project bring expertise in the Reconstruction period, Congress and war planning 1916-1939, the New Deal and World War II, the Great Depression, American Indian culture, and historical biographies.
