The Red Clay and Christina School Districts invite grades 3-12 American history teachers to participate in the Teaching American History Grant’s Freedom Project. The Freedom Project includes partnerships with the University of Delaware’s Center for Teacher Education, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, the Historical Society of Delaware, and Delaware Public Archives.
Participants will have the opportunity each year to earn $500 in classroom resources, $1300 as a stipend, and the chance to attend numerous field trips as well as informative seminars.
Freedom Project Teacher Holly Golder Named 2014 Delaware History Teacher...
Register for the following:
The Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History has named Holly Golder of the Red Clay Consolidated School District’s Cab Calloway School as the newest state history teacher of the year. “I am very honored to receive this prestigious award from Gilder Lehrman, and I am indebted to projects like the Teaching American History Freedom Project that has allowed teachers, like myself, to continue to grow professionally.”
Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History names Jill Szymanski the 2013 National History Teacher of the Year!
“I received this award largely as a result of my participation in the Teaching American History Freedom Project and the fact that I have tried to remain a lifelong learner,” Szymanski says. “My history instruction over the past three years has improved greatly and I attribute this growth to my work with the University of Delaware through the Teaching American History grant’s Freedom Project. The project has given me the time and resources to make important changes in my classroom practices.”
