One of the major thrusts of the
National Center for History in the
Schools is to put together as complete
a collection as possible of
exemplary instructional materials
for the teaching of both American
and World History and then make
them available through publications,
conferences and workshops.
We believe there are vast untapped
resources of innovative
projects and units for the teaching
of history that are unknown beyond
their place of origin and
which deserve to be made available
to the teaching profession
nationally. Can you or your readers
identify some of the best history
programs and teachers in the
state? If so, we ask that the names
and addresses be sent to us. We
will communicate with them regarding
their willingness to share
materials with us.
Thank you very much for your

same time, it will deal with a wide
range of issues concerned with
their preservation and maintenance,
and should appeal to a wide
