Promoting United States History-PUSH

The Capital Area Intermediate Unit in south central Pennsylvania is part of a consortium of 24 local school districts. The partners include Shippensburg State University, Cumberland County Historical Society, the National Civil War Museum, and the PBS Workshops in American History. More than 150 secondary school teachers will be trained. There will be intensive professional workshop development seminars and Exploratory, Guided Teacher Adventures. As part of these sessions, teachers will be guided to begin a concentrated teaching improvement module that involves field-testing the new content and presentation methods in high school classes.
