"Teaching the New North Carolina History": SOHP Contributes to the Project for Historical Education

In March 1999, Southern Oral History Program associates Spencie Love, Pamela Grundy, Jill Hemming, Kathy Newfont, and Kelly Navies offered the workshop "Oral History: Creating and Teaching the New North Carolina History" as part of UNC-CH's Project for Historical Education (PHE). Now in its tenth year, the PHE sponsors day-long workshops for secondary school teachers in which UNC-CH faculty members and other presenters discuss recent developments in historical research and practical strategies for integrating the research into middle school and high school lesson plans. The workshops include a brief lecture, group work sessions, and plenary discussion, and are augmented by packets of written materials. Directed by UNC-CH history professors Lloyd Kramer and Leon Fink (who is now on the faculty of the University of Illinois at Chicago), and supported by funding from the North Carolina Humanities Council and the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation, the PHE continues to foster interactive learning by remaining in regular contact with over 500 teachers.
