The Teaching American History (TAH) grant program supports projects that aim to raise student achievement by improving teachers’ knowledge, understanding, and appreciation of traditional American history as a separate subject within the core elementary and secondary school curriculum.  Grant awards assist local educational agencies (LEAs), in partnership with entities that have extensive content expertise, in developing, implementing, documenting, evaluating, and disseminating innovative, cohesive models of professional development.
