The goal of the History Themes Project is to provide a useful resource to teachers of history that will focus the teaching of history on a manageable set of posthole events taught within the framework of six historical themes. Our aim is to provide a document that teachers and curriculum coordinators will use to guide the development of their history lessons for the classroom in a way that is aligned with the social studies content standards and MEAP tests.
The purpose of this field trial is to determine if we have accomplished our goal. After you have reviewed the History Themes sections, please take the time to respond to the survey questions below. Your comments will provide useful information for improving this document.If you are referring to a specific theme or posthole, please include its name. THANK YOU!
