Little Rock Teaching American History

The district will partner with National History Day, University of Arkansas at Little Rock's Department of History, Colonial Williamsburg, Kagan Professional Development, and Central High Historic National Park Site to provide an intensive ongoing professional development program focused on in-depth U.S. history content knowledge and teaching practices for all American history teachers in grades 5, 8 and 11. The project includes colloquia, creation of collegial professional networking connections, administrative support, establishment of a cadre of American history master teachers, and development of a compendium of innovative lesson plans and strategies for teaching American history that include use of state-of-the-art technology. Teachers will complete 156 hours of in-depth studies on topics within an overall framework of the 5 concepts identified in the Preamble to the U.S. Constitution.
