Please register for History Tuning Project: Connected Educator Month on Aug 20, 2012 10:50 AM EDT at:
The American Historical Association (AHA) is initiating a nationwide, faculty-led project to articulate the core of historical study and to identify what a student should understand and be able to do at the completion of a history degree program.
The AHA’s initiative to “tune the history major” encompasses three broad objectives. This webinar session will provide an overview of the project and then discuss the objectives below with a focus on how they will impact secondary history education.
1)Articulate the core abilities, habits of mind, and knowledge required of their discipline
2)Develop a clear, common language to express the distinctive value of history for students, employers, and public culture. Students who can see clearly what they are learning, and why, are better equipped to direct their studies towards lifelong learning, meaningful employment, and civic participation;
3) Provide a nationwide framework in which historians can design the systems used by their institutions to measure their achievements as teachers.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
