History in Perspective: Teaching American History

The district, in collaboration with nine other small districts, will work with the University of New Hampshire, the New Hampshire Historical Society, and the New Hampshire Department of Education. Project staff will work with 57 teachers from 17 schools in the districts that have been used as cluster sites for the University's teacher preparation program. Activities include two-day separate seminars for the fall and spring and two-week summer institutes. These sessions will include presentations by professional historians, the reading and analyzing of primary and secondary sources, the exploration of additional web-based sources, and the uses of media. Project staff will help the teachers translate these lessons into effective classroom learning strategies.
