The purpose of Teachinghistory.org is to help K–12 history teachers access resources and materials to improve US history education in the classroom.
Teachinghistory.org builds on and shares the lessons learned by more than a thousand Teaching American History projects designed to raise student achievement by improving teachers’ knowledge and understanding of traditional US history.
The aim of Teachinghistory.org is to place history content, teaching strategies, current research and issues, community building, and easy access to resources at the forefront.
Teachinghistory.org brings together "the many communities involved in improving history education and professional development for history teachers, allowing practitioners, historians, administrators, and history educators to present multiple perspectives, debate current issues, and work together to improve history teaching in classrooms throughout the United States."
Teachinghistory.org was created by The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media (CHNM) and is funded by the US Department of Education, Office of Innovation and Improvement’s Teaching American History (TAH) program.
