Online Clearinghouse Offers Help for K-12 History Teachers
A new, online clearinghouse for history education has been established to provide curriculum, research, and professional-development resources for K-12 teachers.
The National History Education Clearinghouse, launched this month by the Center for History and New Media at George Mason University and the Stanford University History Education Group, is underwritten by a $7 million grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
The free Web site, www.teachinghistory.org, includes links to journal articles, Web-based documents and other historical collections, and examples of best teaching practices.
