Connect local history to national themes
Use Our Lesson Plans!
Using the National Standards of Learning

Use your school building as a starting point for a Lesson Plan in history and social studies!
The 2003-2004 National Secondary Social Studies Teacher of the Year Geraldine Hastings*, and the National Trust for Historic Preservation have worked together to produce Lesson Plans for Historic School Day. These Lesson Plans will use the year, or the decade, in which your school was built as the starting point for a project that will make history come alive for your students. We will provide a national forum for all participants to post their projects on line. Plan to participate; take photos and post your work on the National Trust for Historic Preservation's web site www.nthp.org. We'll be picking examples to share all year long!

* Geri is Chair of the Social Studies Department at Catonsville High School in Maryland, and teaches AP US History. She was Maryland Social Studies Educator of the Year in 2002-2003 and is a faculty consultant on AP US History for The College Board.
