American History Alive

This project combines the efforts of the Winona R-III School District, Mineral Area College, and Rolla University to enrich American history instruction, improve student performance, and promote the teaching of traditional American history as a separate academic subject at Winona High School. The American history teacher will receive training in techniques such as scaffolding, matching texts to students, instructional language, demonstrations, history centers and flexible grouping to enhance student learning. History Department faculty will collaborate in developing classroom projects and implementing evaluation measures. The project focuses on reducing the current gap between student history scores and state standards.
