Endowment for a Center for History Education that includes a graduate fellowship program, a digital history portal, and curricular innovations.

Teachers College proposes a major three-year campaign to endow a Center for History Education with the mission of improving the teaching and learning of American history in high-poverty schools with diverse populations, especially new immigrants and English Language Learners. The focus of these efforts will be to address the question: What does it mean to be an American? The Center’s mission will be to provide a national model of history education for the increasingly diverse student population nationwide through on-site and online professional development activities. The grant endowment will specifically support: establishment of a Center for History Education; development of teaching and learning materials in history to be field-tested with local teachers and put onto a web portal; two fully funded History Fellows (stipend and scholarship) who will develop high-quality teaching resources designed specifically for these student populations.
