ASHP/CML is embarking on a new professional development program in the New York City public schools funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Teaching American History initiative. This three-year program will serve K-12 social studies teachers in Queens and Brooklyn who teach students who are English Language Learners. ASHP/CML will explore historical content with teachers through primary source materials, scholar presentations, and model inquiry-based lessons. Faculty from project partners at the Queens College Department of Education and LaGuardia Community College will work with teachers to develop pedagogical strategies and adapt primary source materials for their English Language Learner students.
