dc.description.abstract Foundations of U.S. History: Virginia History as American History was a Teaching American History grant, funded by the U.S. Department of Education from 2006-2009, that provided an opportunity for elementary, middle, and high school teachers of American history to expand and improve their content knowledge of Virginia history and U.S. history and their instructional skills. The program emphasized the use of primary sources to strengthen historical thinking skills and enrich historical understandings. A key component of the program was a two-week summer institute each year. During the school year, teachers developed activities and lesson plans that incorporated content and resources from the summer institute. This website served as an essential tool to help participating teachers accomplish the goals of this project. Components of the website include schedules of events, a collaboration section, a resources section, and a curriculum units section. Hosted at en_US
