Teaching American History
curriculum resourcesThe Foundations Project is a three-year program of professional development funded by a Teaching American History grant awarded to the Russell and Scott Counties by the United States Department of Education. Russell and Scott have partnered with the Virginia Center for Digital History at the University of Virginia to provide on-site outreach workshops and seminars to explore strategies for implementing digital primary resources in American history classrooms. Regular workshops will focus on the methodology of using digital technology while annual seminars will expose teachers to content and research. These resources will combine to increase teacher knowledge of American history and improve the quality of instruction thereby increasing student achievement.
