- Law and Society in Modern America: Teaching 20th Century American History in Alternative Education Settings
This project of the Los Angeles County Office of Education developed in collaboration with the National Center for History in the Schools is designed to improve the teaching of 20th Century American History to students largely under-served in conventional history education programs: students in juvenile hall, court and community schools, continuation schools, and other alternative education settings. It includes scholar lectures and field study of historic sites to improve the content knowledge of teachers and lessons designed specifically for struggling students who attend alternative education sites for limited periods of time. The lessons are short, concise, have motivational “hooks” that connect learning to prior experiences and include a number of strategies to support English Learners and struggling readers.
