Teaching and Learning History


What is the TLH? The Teaching and Learning History Community is a place to discuss issues and topics related to the teaching and learning of all fields of history at K-12, Two- and Four-Year institutions, museums, and public history sites.

How is the AHA involved?  AHA Teaching Division Chair Elaine Carey starts conversations and responds to community members that post. AHA Staff Julia Brookins (Special Projects Coordinator) and Dana Schaffer (Associate Director) follow the boards, add content of interest, and participate in the discussions.

Who can participate?  Anyone can register. Registered users (registration is free) can read,  post articles and links, and respond to topics and discussion threads,  but only AHA members can start new topics. Teachers, students, researchers, administrators, interpreters, and others involved in TLH are encouraged to respond.

Note: The AHA staff reserve the right to remove topics unrelated to teaching and learning history or that violate the AHA Communities Code of Conduct
