Becoming Modern: America, 1918-1929

The creation of an educational "toolbox" for school teachers on American history, culture, and "modernity," 1918-1929.

Under the direction of the National Humanities Center, this project will bring together outstanding scholars and master high school teachers of American history and literature to create a thematically organized online anthology of historical documents, literary texts, visual images, and audio material, contextualized and illuminated by notes, discussion questions, and links to supplemental sites. Entitled ?Becoming Modern: America, 1918-1929,? this resource toolbox will be available in 2010. It will be organized to enable educators to use it as the basis of teacher professional development seminars and classroom lesson plans. ?Becoming Modern? will be the eleventh volume in the Center?s Toolbox Library. The Center actively promotes the Library through a variety of means, including training programs that show educators how to use toolboxes to build professional development seminars and strengthen instruction.
