American Social History Project • Center for Media and Learning

Queens (English Language Learners)

With partners from the Queens College School of Education and LaGuardia Community College, this three-year Teaching American History program (2007-2010) works with K-12 teachers who teach English Language Learner students. At seminars during the school year, teachers learn both new historical material and pedagogical approaches designed for English-Language Learners. Summer institutes provide opportunities to put new knowledge and pedagogy into practice developing materials for their own classrooms.
