The Center for the Teaching of American History draws on the resources of the Division of Education in the School of Education and Human Development and the History Department in Harpur College to sponsor activities that contribute to the improvement of the teaching of American History at the secondary school level.

The Center has received three Teaching American History grants from the federal Department of Education to work on a range of professional development activities with secondary school teachers and librarians in upstate New York aimed at improving the teaching of American History.

In 2009, we applied for and received a small professional development grant from the Library of Congress under its Teaching with Primary Sources program. Under this grant, the Center and Broome Tioga BOCES, the primary grantee, collaborated on two new professional development opportunities for BT BOCES teachers and librarians. The two workshops provided participants with support in learning to access and employ in the classroom resources from the Library of Congress's American Memory web site that were aligned with New York State History Standards.

Area teachers and Binghamton University graduate students interested in participating in any of the Center's programs should contact Dr. Adam Laats at (607) 777- or via email.
