Region 8 ESC is excited to bring Teaching American History to Region 8 teachers.

Teaching American History supports teachers of American History, government, and civics, believing they do the most important work in America.  TAH brings the documents and debates of America's past into the present through free document-based seminars, document collections both online and in print, and other resources.  They are dedicated to making every American History, government, and civics class in America the best.
