Teaching with Historic Places

Most of us can recall a moment when we realized we were standing on a spot suffused with history. It might have been the home of a famous person, the site of a famous battle, or a neighborhood that recalls life a century ago.

Teachers, preservationists, and historic site specialists have long known that historic locations can have the same effect on students, capturing their attention and interest in a way that textbooks may not.

Yet professional training on how to incorporate these places into the classroom has rarely been easily available. The Teaching with Historic Places program has responded to this need by developing a series of professional materials and development opportunities.
