I received this message today.  I won’t be reading – because I’ll be writing – but I assume many of the readers of this blog are potential reviewers and encourage you to join the jury:

The 2010 U.S. Department of Education’s Teaching American History (TAH) grant competition is upon us and we NEED your help to review TAH grant applications.  We would appreciate your assistance disseminating this information to anyone you know who may be interested.

The anticipated grant review dates are April-May, 2010.

You may serve as a TAH grant reviewer if you meet at least (1) one of the following qualifications:

  • A degree in history
  • K-12 history teacher
  • History professor
  • TAH grant director
  • TAH grant partner
  • History scholar
  • Other history-related professional
  • Professional development provider
  • Evaluator or evaluation specialist

Please email your abbreviated résumé (5 pages maximum) to Yianni Alepohoritis at or Adam Bookman at no later than February 19, 2010. Please specify in your email whether you are a history, professional development, or evaluation specialist.

If selected, you will serve on a panel with two other reviewers.  This is an approximately three week process of reading, scoring, and meeting with your panel via teleconferences.  An honorarium of approximately $1000 is given to those who complete the grant review. Each reviewer will review about 10 applications. If you are involved in a current 2010 application, you may not serve as a reviewer.
