Teaching with Historic Places

Do you know a historic place that could be the basis of a good lesson plan? Somewhere that embodies America's history, either as the site of a regionally-important event or one that shows how national issues affected local developments?

Consider writing a lesson plan using instructions for the classic, long-form Teaching with Historic Places (TwHP) model or the new "lightning lesson" model.

Many of our lessons began as graduate student projects, intern assignments, and teachers' existing lesson plans. You may submit a proposal for a lesson plan to publish in the series that is based on a National Register property and uses the TwHP format. If your proposal is accepted, our staff will provide guidance as you develop and revise the draft to meet TwHP standards and conventions; arrange for it to be reviewed by education and subject-matter experts; and finalize your lesson for inclusion in the online national series.
