Teaching American History

The American Antiquarian Society is partnering with a number of school systems and educational associations to develop comprehensive teacher training programs under the United States Department of Education's Teaching American History (TAH) initiative. These projects involve a wide range of activities from full graduate level courses to one-week institutes to single seminars and workshops. These programs frequently involve lectures and discussions by prominent historians and scholars many of whom are AAS members and fellows and intensive hands-on experiences with primary source texts and images from the Society's collections. Current and past AAS-TAH projects and programs are listed here with links to more detailed descriptions and information.
