What to Expect at TAH Programs

TAH.org offers programs designed to give social studies teachers the very best preparation for the classroom.

Our seminar-style classes encourage you to engage directly with primary source documents, rather than simply listening to lectures. Our faculty treat you as colleagues, respecting your work as teachers, and helping you grow as scholars. Our goal is to bring social studies teachers into a conversation about the American experiment in self-government. Our hope is that America’s students will be brought into this conversation as well.
