Defining US: The American Experience

Description

Defining US: The American Experience is a Fairfax County Public Schools Teaching American History project designed in partnership with the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University to increase teachers' and students' knowledge of traditional American history and ability to analyze primary sources and think historically.

Funded by the U.S. Department of Education, TAH grants developed, documented, evaluated, and disseminated innovative and cohesive models of professional development. By helping teachers to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of U.S. history as a separate subject matter within the core curriculum, these programs were designed to improve instruction and raise student achievement. Grants were awarded from 2001 to 2010.
