For Districts

History Project facilitators and teacher leaders are available to work with your district, school, or county office of education through customized programs tailored to meet your goals, your budget, and the needs of your teachers and students.

Our work with schools spans single day workshops to multi-year collaborations, but the most effective collaborations occur over multiple years.

Our customized programs can address any combination of the following:
