JTHG Resources for Teachers
A Fresh Approach to Teaching American History
The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership has always worked to create innovative and engaging educational programs for students and their teachers. By learning to appreciate and value our shared American history, students begin to better understand how our nation’s past affects their lives both today and tomorrow. Through the variety of resources and opportunities JTHG provides, educators can transform their approach to teaching American history, thereby connecting their students with the content in new and exciting ways.
The Journey Through Hallowed Ground Partnership offers a diverse range of educational resources designed to help history and civics teachers incorporate local historic sites into their teaching. From innovative lesson plans to immersive Extreme Journey camps and field trip guides, these creative resources present new tools that teachers can use to transform their approach to teaching American history, ensuring that students effectively understand the material and develop their own opinions on how our nation’s past affects their future.
Take the Journey… then… Teach the Journey
To assist educators in obtaining their mandated Continuing Education Units (CEU’s), JTHG partners with other organizations to develop unique, content-based professional development programs.
