Our American Democracy was a Teaching American History grant administered by New York City Community School District 12, through Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School, in partnership with Queens College of the City of New York, the American Social History Project (ASHP) and the Education Development Center. The project’s focus was to improve history teachers’ content knowledge and skills in developing and implementing inquiry-oriented lessons, as well as to improve student learning outcomes. The main work of the grant was teachers working in teams to produce curricular units for their own use, while also disseminating these units for use by other educators. As a result of the project, we are publishing the attached units, which were produced by history teachers who participated in the project.
