What do students learn in introductory history courses? How can historical thinking support student learning and success across the curriculum? Since 2015, the AHA and local partners have held an annual two-day conference in Texas on secondary and college-level introductory history courses to address these and other questions. In 2023, the AHA added a second conference in Utah, and will host conferences in Michigan and Virginia in the coming year.
