American Social History Project • Center for Media and Learning

Programs for Educators

Since 1989, American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning has worked with history and humanities instructors in professional development seminars in New York City and around the country. We believe in collaboration: among faculty, CUNY partners, and local museums and cultural institutions. Our work with teachers emphasizes social history, interdisciplinary humanities, student inquiry, literacy skills, and technology, and we work closely with independent evaluators to assess and strengthen program approaches and outcomes. 

As historians and media producers located at the intersection of public higher and grade 7-12 education, ASHP/CML brings significant advantages to our professional development programs: connection to a network of leading scholars in U.S. history, decades of experience working with local teachers, and an extensive collection of print and multimedia resources produced by ourselves and others.

If you are interested in working with ASHP/CML on a professional development program for your faculty, please contact us.
