Teaching History Refresh
The Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media is pleased to announce the launch of the updated Teaching History website.
Teaching History, a Teaching American History project funded by the U.S. Department of Education, provides educational resources and materials in U.S. history to K-12 students and teachers.
Teaching History has a renewed focus on the site’s most important content:
- Teaching Materials — teaching guides, lesson plan reviews, and ELL resources
- History Content — historical knowledge, teaching resources, and website reviews
- Best Practices — teaching in action, examples of historical thinking, and techniques for promoting historical inquiry
- Digital Classroom — digital tools and platforms to use in the classroom
This streamlining highlights current educational projects and technologies for the 21st-century classroom. Teaching History features the following new content and site changes:
- Website reviews of current digital educational projects, including the Beyond Words project at the Library of Congress and Eagle Eye Citizen
- Tech for Teachers step-by-step tutorials on using new digital tools and projects in the classroom, such as TimelineJS, a tool that allows students to create multimedia timelines
- Refreshed navigational menus that enable easier access to educational materials across the site
- Updated multimedia to work across operating systems and browsers
With these new changes, Teaching History will continue to provide exciting and interactive educational content for K-12 students and teachers studying U.S. history.
