Registration is open for our August Wednesday and Saturday webinars.
Learning through discussion, led by a scholar.
Teaching American History programs are different from other teaching seminars you might attend. In our seminars, participants read primary sources from American history and spend their time in thoughtful discussion. They leave with a richer appreciation for broader themes in history and a better understanding of how to bring discussion-based learning to their own classrooms.
Teachers across the country are uncovering the story of our nation.
Our Teacher Partners strengthen their American history, government, and civics classes through primary document discussion. Learn more about their experience.
A strong foundation in primary documents
The Core Documents Volumes
Edited with commentary by leading scholars, the Core Document collections curate key primary sources that track a single theme throughout the course of American history. Available to teachers as bound paperbacks or as PDF files, they are a foundational piece to any documents-based curriculum.
