Rethinking the Americas: Teaching History Outreach Project on the Americas

 >  > Rethinking the Americas: Teaching History Outreach Project on the Americas

Rethinking the Americas Teaching History was an educational outreach project created as a collaboration between the University of Maryland’s Department of History, the David C. Driskell Center, and Montgomery County Public Schools, with MITH hosting the website through 2004. The project was designed to enrich teachers’ understanding of history, and improve student learning among Montgomery County middle and high schools.

Each workshop in the series of five introduced major themes in the study of one aspect of the history of the Americas.

Details on all of the workshops can be found on the archived version of the project website from 2002.
