The Teaching American History Program: An Introduction and Overview
Stein, Alex
History Teacher, v36 n2 p178-185 Feb 2003
The Teaching American History (TAH) program began in 2001 as a bold new idea: that history content could be delivered directly to United States history teachers through ongoing partnerships with providers of history expertise. The program awards three-year federal education grants for up to $1 million to develop and carry out these professional development partnerships. After a nationwide competition, the grants are awarded to school districts to improve the history teaching abilities of their United States history teachers. This article provides a brief overview of the program's background and practices in order to introduce the articles that follow in this issue of "History Teacher." These articles are written by TAH grantee project directors who summarize and analyze the first year's experience of their professional development partnerships. (Contains 8 notes.)
