PARTNER PROFILE

TeachingAmericanHistory.org is the leading online resource for teachers of American history, government, and civics. TAH.org provides online and in-person opportunities to earn graduate degrees in American History and Government; partners with schools across the country to bring its unique, Socratic model of primary documents study to teachers where they work; and has a vast array of documents and programs available at TAH.org. Teachers who participate in online and in-person programs can earn graduate credit for their work on primary documents-based lessons. Those lessons, vetted by TAH.org, are presented here at Share My Lesson for the use of the broader Social Studies teaching community. Additionally, lessons created under a National Endowment for the Humanities grant are also available. TAH.org is committed to adding to this archive with additional lessons, podcasts, and materials for teachers in search of enrichment for themselves, and lessons for their students. TAH.org
