About the TAH Grant
"This partnership provides an opportunity for us to study aspects of our history and region with greater depth and to have time to focus on curriculum development."
-Marilyn Watkins, Dean of the School of Education
The Teaching American History grant developed from a partnership with the Indiana University East School of Humanities and Social Sciences, the School of Education, the Richmond Community Schools, the Wayne County Historical Museum, and the Indiana State Museum. The grant provided funds to purchase high-quality educational resources for students in grades K-12 and provide additional training to 15 Richmond history teachers through graduate-level coursework and an intensive summer institute.
