Introducing New American History

"Introducing New American History" will take place over Zoom from 10:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m. CT on Tuesday and Wednesday, July 16 and 17.

This two-part series will introduce teachers to New American History, a digital history project with extensive resources for teachers and students. New American History’s learning resources are designed primarily for middle- and high-school social studies teachers interested in harnessing the power of digital media, curiosity, and inquiry in their classrooms. Correlated with national standards and informed by inquiry-based pedagogy, New American History resources can help teachers uncover new ways to teach the past in light of the present.

Edward L. Ayers (executive director, New American History; University Professor of the Humanities and president emeritus, University of Richmond) and Annie Evans (director of education, New American History) will lead the webinar series.
