K-12 Professional Services
Since 1988, NCHS has gathered teachers for professional development in United States and World History in evening and weekend sessions and in summer institutes that have varied from one to four weeks. Professional development sessions combine content presentations with pedagogy methods. Historians present historical content and scholarship through primary sources and innovative approaches. Classroom experts then follow with methods for taking this new knowledge to the classroom where it can be adapted to different grade levels and different student capabilities. In many of the programs, especially in connection with Teaching American History grants, NCHS weaves field trips around historical sites and museums to different parts of the nation.
NCHS is also active in developing history curriculum with various school districts and individual schools.
