Landmarks of American History and Culture - Workshops for Community College Faculty
Service to the Profession
Supported by a grant from the NEH's Bridging Cultures initiative, the AHA's "American History, Atlantic and Pacific" professional development program for Community College faculty promotes a global perspective on US history at the country's increasingly diverse two-year institutions. The program draws on a generation of innovative scholarship that has reframed the origins of the US within a broad geographical and chronological context. Participants worked to create or revise US history courses with lessons, units, and other work that deepens teaching on the US in the world.
