Learning America's Story Through Interesting New Genres (LASTING)

This project partners Calhoun County System with Jacksonville State University, the Anniston Museum of Natural History and the Berman Museum of World History. Eighteen teachers of American history will be chosen to participate in ongoing professional development activities for 124 contact hours during each project year. Activities include workshops during the school year, summer institutes, the development of teaching materials and strategies (including some that are web based), and using technology to access information and original documents. Participants will also have opportunities to travel together on guided seminars to places of historical interest and significance. The participants will coach and mentor peers and present workshops at the university’s In-Service Education Center, professional conferences, and their own schools.
