We have started scheduling our 2015 day long seminars and the application process is now open.
The most important work in America is teaching American history and government. This work is essential to preserving what has always been distinctly good about America. We are dedicated to making every American history and government class in America its best.
TeachingAmericanHistory.org is a project of Ashbrook at Ashland University. We provide social studies educators from across the country with opportunities to explore themes in American history and government through the use of primary sources. This spring educators can take advantage of the unique Ashbrook discussion-based format programs in their state. Not only will you be engaged in thoughtful conversation, you will be learning the content your students need.
