KHS Accepting Nominations for 2011 History Teacher of the Year

FRANKFORT, Ky. (Jan. 10,  2011)— The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS), in partnership with the Gilder Lehrman Institute for American History, HISTORY and Preserve America, is now accepting nominations for 2011 National History Teacher of the Year.

The Gilder Lehrman Institute sponsors the National History Teacher of the Year award annually in its effort to promote the study and love of American history. The state winner receives $1,000, an archive of classroom resources and the opportunity to compete for the national award. The national winner receives a $10,000 prize and a trip with two of his or her students to the award ceremony in early Fall 2011. 

This year’s contest recognizes K-6 teachers of American history.  Nominees must have at least three years of classroom experience in teaching social studies with a focus on American history, including state and local history.  They must exhibit creativity and imagination in the classroom with the intent to promote literacy and content beyond state standards.  Nominees must also devote close attention to primary documents, artifacts, historic sites and other primary materials of history, including oral history, and provide thoughtful assessment of student achievement and progress.  Nominees must also plan to teach for at least one year following the award year.

Nominations can be made by a student, parent, colleague, supervisor or other education professional familiar with the teacher’s work.  Self-nominations are not accepted.
