The Certificate Program in the Teaching of American History
provides training for teachers and prospective teachers that will prepare
them to bring the latest interpretive thinking in the field of American
History into secondary school teaching. This program has emerged as a
central element in thinking that has been stimulated by "Teaching American
History," a grant program at the Department of Education. Determined to
make a contribution to the professional development of local teachers of
American History, we think the best way to do so is to create an ongoing
program that will continue to operate in the future. By building a
long-term collaborative relationship between the University and local
history teachers, a Certificate Program is a way to make a lasting
contribution in this area.
The Certificate Program is made possible by support that comes to
Binghamton University from this external funding and the Provost's
commitment to support these collaborative activities after the completion
of the grant period. Professor Thomas Dublin, of
the History Department, is Project Director for the DOE grant and
Assistant Professor Adam Laats, in the School of Education, is
the Associate Director of the Center. Dr. Laats teaches the two-course
sequence that provides a central component of the Certificate Program.
