Teaching American History

This county office of education works with 5 other southern California county education offices and partners with National History Day, the Organization of American Historians, University of California-Los Angeles, Colonial Williamsburg, the National Council for History Education, and the California Professional Development Committee. Three cohorts of 32 teachers, each in teams of two representing all the counties involved, will concentrate on 17th and 18th Century U.S. history in Year 1; 19th Century History in Year 2, and 20th Century History in Year 3. They will work with 65 primary source-based teaching units. The teacher fellows will research historical subjects, help train other teachers, and develop classroom lessons.
