The program includes four semester courses, a student-teacher history conference, a mentorship program for history teachers who develop into mentors themselves, a 4-day history-technology course, a conference for 600 teachers, and a teacher-friendly publication with teacher-generated project ideas, lesson plans, and curriculum models.
