Bridging Cultures

The AHA has launched a program for community-college faculty development that promotes a global perspective on U.S. history at the country's increasingly diverse two-year institutions. "American History, Atlantic and Pacific" will draw on a generation of innovative scholarship that has reframed the origins of the United States within a broad geographical and chronological context. Participants will work to create or revise U.S. history courses-especially the popular U.S. history survey course-with lessons, units, and other work that deepens teaching on the United States in the world.

Experiments with PechaKucha

Bridging Cultures participant Shannon Bontrager used the PechaKucha presentation format to get his students to engage in conversation about their research projects in a Mellow Mushroom full of excited administrators, teachers, and parents. Read about how this innovative approach to a U.S. history course went on AHA Today.
