I have participated actively in the Teaching American History Grant. This included college level level presentation on American History and Geography. It focused on the use of primary source documents and integrating literacy with social studies. I have also taught American and World history over the past 7 years in grades 5 and 6. Th grant also included yearly travel to historical sites with academic tours.
