Teachinghistory.org Wins 2013 AASLH Award of Merit

Jul 22 2013 AASLH logo

Teachinghistory.org is honored to receive an Award of Merit from the American Association for State and Local History (AASLH).

The AASLH Leadership in History Award, now in its 68th year, is the most prestigious recognition for achievement in the preservation and interpretation of state and local history.

Teachinghistory.org is a free online resource for K-12 teachers that has been called “a ‘non-negotiable’ — a tool so valuable no history teacher should try teaching without it” (History Tech Blog). Originally funded by a 2007 U.S. Department of Education contract, the website welcomes over 1.7 million visitors annually from all 50 states and more than 150 countries. While the majority of users are K-12 teachers, the site is also a favorite of librarians, social studies methods instructors, homeschoolers, and public historians.

Presentation of the awards will be made during the 2013 AASLH Annual Meeting in Birmingham, AL, on September 20.

The AASLH awards program was initiated in 1945 to establish and encourage standards of excellence in the collection, preservation, and interpretation of state and local history throughout the United States. The AASLH Leadership in History Awards not only honor significant achievement in the field of state and local history, but also bring public recognition of the opportunities for small and large organizations, institutions, and programs to make contributions in this arena.

Thanks to all our contributors who have helped make Teachinghistory.org such a strong resource for history education. And special thanks to all of you who use Teachinghistory.org and spread the word about it—we share this award with you!

Great to know about the AASLH

Great to know about the AASLH Leadership in History Award, now in its 68th year. I am a student of History and now this site is a great reference for me.
