National Center for History in the Schools

Logo, National Center for History in Schools

The home for a full-text version (except for charts and illustrations) of the 1996 edition of National Standards for History. It was developed with federal funding as part of a bipartisan effort to promote national educational reform with regard to the content and assessment of K–12 U.S. and world history courses in American schools. The site offers information concerning 36 additional Center publications designed for teaching specific American history subjects at various grade levels. A valuable resource for teachers.
