Teaching American History Program

Calcasieu Parish School System, a high-poverty urban parish located in Southwest Louisiana, is partnering with Louisiana State University’s Middleton Library, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, the Colonial Williamsburg Foundation, the National D-Day Museum, the Civil War Institute at Gettysburg College, Region V Technology Center, and Active Learning Systems. Summer institutes and workshops will provide teachers with increased knowledge of American history subject matter. Teachers will also learn how students learn and how to make history ideas accessible so they can construct “teachable moments.”
