Established: 2024

Purpose: To plan and advise on AHA activities and programming of interest to history faculty at secondary schools working to build a stronger sense of community, to create venues to discuss pedagogical and professional issues of common concern, and to connect K–12 faculty to the broader historical community and the AHA. The group’s work includes organizing regular programming at the AHA annual meeting or online activities, investigating additional avenues for building community among faculty (including possible collaborations with other consortia and organizations and the creation of a listserv or online community), and communicating with and supporting the AHA leadership on the needs and interests of K–12 history faculty.

Membership: 5–6 K–12 faculty members with three-year staggered terms. Council appoints members to the working group. Appointed members will be selected from a slate of candidates recommended by the current working group members.

Assignment to Division: None. Reports on its work directly to the Council or respective division depending on the task.
