  • From 2008-2014, Columbus City Schools partnered with Ashland University, the Ohio Historical Society, and the National Constitution Center, to establish History Speaks: Not Just Words on Paper, a program designed to increase teachers' knowledge, understanding, appreciation, and delivery of traditional American history content for approximately 120 teachers (grades 8-12) to raise student achievement on state-mandated tests for 18,000 students. 
     
     
    This course is designed to help teachers prepare their students for the Historical Thinking and Skills standards Ohio’s New Learning Standards and the Literacy in History/Social Studies standards in the ELA Common Core State Standards. Participants will explore current issues in historiography (historical thought and method) and history pedagogy for the classroom, with an emphasis on inquiry-based strategies.
