Teaching American History grants will support programs to raise student
achievement by improving teachers’ knowledge, understanding, and
appreciation of American history. Grant awards will assist local
educational agencies (LEAs), in partnership with entities that have
extensive content expertise, to develop, document, evaluate, and
disseminate innovative, cohesive models of professional development. By
helping teachers to develop a deeper understanding and appreciation of
traditional American history as a separate subject matter within the
core curriculum, these programs will improve instruction and raise
student achievement.

Eligible Applicants: Local educational agencies (LEAs), working in
partnership with one or more of the following entities:
o Institutions of higher education (IHEs);
o Non-profit history or humanities organizations; and
o Libraries and museums.
