District AccreditationReceived April 2008
Elmore County Public Schools is pleased to announce the kick-off of
Year 2 of the U.S. Department of Education Teaching American History Grant.
All Social Studies and History teachers in grades 7-12 will be participating in this
project which focuses on advancing the content knowledge of teachers and enhancing
the presentation of lessons through the implementation of strategic teaching strategies
and best practices.
In addition to the advanced content instruction and professional development,
teachers will participate in field studies at various locations, two book studies each year,
and will work to create lesson plans, activities, and projects to be shared on an online
collaborative website. Participants will also receive quality materials and resources
to help move instruction from the textbooks to primary and secondary sources,
supplemental reading materials, maps, simulations, and engaging, interactive activities.
The greatest benefit of this opportunity will be that through the increase of teacher
content knowledge and pedagogy, students will achieve greater success and
will have the necessary skills to thoroughly analyze historical content and have a
more active role in the future of our country.
