Welcome to our community for teaching and learning

If you are looking for ways to overcome the challenges of teaching history in our current environment, this community is for you.

The Challenge

History is hard.

As a history or humanities teacher, you’ve probably faced many challenges, from overloaded curricula to limited resources, from stressed students and parents to outdated textbooks. We want to help you leverage your community to take some of the load off of your shoulders and make learning for students more impactful.

Teachers talking

Founded by Teachers for Teachers

This learning collaborative was founded by teachers to help other educators strive and thrive as Changemakers for better learning. We want to help you leverage effective pedagogies and the community in which you live so that your students experience history as a source of inspiration and civic growth.



Templates for Projects

We have scoured the globe for the best models of project-based learning that can be used in history. We created easy-to-use templates that help you make learning with community institutions successful and impactful.

A Community Competency Framework

Our education systems tend to be focused on testable outcomes in reading and math.  But in order for democracy to thrive, we need to align as a full community on delivering core learning outcomes that determine whether or not a young person can thrive and grow.  
Our Priority Learning Goals

A Learning Library for Play

We are in the process of building a collection of learning resources focused on using play to connect students with difficult concepts.  Watch this space for the ultimate collection of games that will help you bring history to life and help students make meaning of the world.
