We the Teachers

TAH One-Day Seminars in the Southwest

With a few months of the 2018-2019 school year under your belt, you may be starting to hit that fall/winter fatigue. Don’t lose the spark! Now is the perfect time to infuse new life into your teaching by exploring fresh ideas with like-minded history teachers. We have several one-day seminars scheduled this fall and spring across 5 states in the Southwest.

Teaching American History offers seminars at no charge for you and your fellow teachers, who will dive right into original historical documents, from the Bill of Rights to landmark Supreme Court cases, under the teaching of university scholars who are experts in their respective fields. Getting to the roots of our country’s exciting and complicated history will help you inspire your students for second semester and beyond.
