Northern Nevada Teaching American History Website

The Northern Nevada Teaching American History Project website (created with a 2001 TAH grant) has been continuously updated with teacher-created materials for secondary and elementary teachers. It contains more than 700 teacher-created, standards-based lessons, each linked to Nevada history standards and major topics in traditional American history. In addition to the lessons, the website houses the yearly calendar of TAH workshops, presentation materials and powerpoints, newsletters, and links to history based websites. The purpose of this website is to provide teachers with materials to teach American history using document-based historical inquiry and other pedagogy specific to history teaching and learning. The website includes the link, “Ask a Historian,” which allows teachers to pose historical questions to our resident historians from UNR. Teachers who participate in this project will continue to add lessons to the website (www.washoe.k12.nv.us/americanhistory).
