Each year, teachers from across the ESD112 service region enthusiastically join the Teaching American History Grant funded project, Causes of Conflict: Digging Deep to Understand American History. Participating teachers study with top historians both in Vancouver and “on location” in nationally significant sites. Using the Lesson Study approach, they investigate the teaching and learning of US history paying special attention to their students’ literacy needs. During the 2010-2011 year, we’ll be focusing on the American Revolution. After reading this application, ask yourself: Is this project a good fit for you? If so, we hope you’ll join us!
The completed application is due March 1, 2010. Please direct any questions to Project Director Matt Karlsen via email or phone (360 750 7505.)
