About TAH Programs
What to Expect at TAH Programs
TAH.org offers programs designed to give social studies teachers the very best preparation for the classroom.
Learning through discussion.
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.
We help teachers do the real work of history.
Speaking of Professor Scott Yenor, Liz Schley said: “He guided us to do our own thinking. He’d ask us, ‘Why do you think what you’ve just said—can you point to a particular section of the document, or to other readings you’ve done?’” As teachers went back to the text to look for evidence, and as they listened to others who pointed to different evidence, they often revised their thinking.
