Bridgerland PATHS

Logan City School District and Cache Valley School District, located in a high mountain valley in Cache County, Utah, have partnered with Utah State University and the American West Heritage Center (a non-profit history organization) to create a teachers academy entitled Bridgerland PATHS (Professional Academy for the Teaching of History in Schools). Through weeklong summer academies and four one-day workshops offered throughout the school year, local and national experts will provide training designed to increase teachers' knowledge of Utah and American history and update, expand and diversify pedagogical methods utilized for teaching history. An online listserv with threaded discussion strands will allow teachers convenient access to a variety of professional historians and expert history teachers.
