National History Education Clearinghouse Launches

Colleagues, here's another great resource for social studies teachers. Check this out:

" The Center for History and New Media has just publicly launched a massive, multi-year project and website: the National History Education Clearinghouse. With major funding from the U.S. Department of Education, the Clearinghouse is designed to help K-12 history teachers access resources and materials to improve U.S. history education in the classroom. The project builds on and disseminates the valuable lessons learned by more than 800 Teaching American History projects, which the Dept. of Ed’s Office of Innovation and Improvement underwrote to raise student achievement by improving teachers’ knowledge and understanding of traditional U.S. history. At the Center we have done five of these TAH projects, using new media to enhance and rethink the acquisition of historical knowledge and theory."
