The courses and workshops offered by the History Project take a common approach, one marked by frank acknowledgment of the challenges secondary teachers face, by a deep engagement with scholarship, and by an open environment where teachers can work through solutions with one another and with professors. Our goal is to present teachers with the latest thinking on an important issue undiluted, with the conflict left in and the blank places visible, to acquaint them with the state of scholarship. We want teachers to understand the interpretative as well as the factual nature of history, to work more with supplementary texts and primary materials, and to see themselves and their students as participants in the process of creating, of doing history, not simply as the recipients of an immutable body of information.
