Bringing History Home!    

Since 2001, school districts have adopted Bringing History Home to engage children in rigorous history explorations.  Bringing History Home (BHH) instructional units develop student skills and knowledge, and BHH professional development raises teacher expertise across the K-5 grade levels.  Inspired by children's enthusiasm to learn, and student outcomes on rigorous assessments, districts in at least seven states have adopted BHH evidence-based strategies.

In addition to BHH lesson plans and teaching strategies, on our website you will find bibliographies of selected children's history books, links to selected internet resources, and guides to using BHH strategies in college classrooms.

Bringing History Home, now a non-profit corporation, was originally a project funded by four U.S. Department of Education Teaching American History grants.  Currently, in 2021, new BHH instructional materials on state-specific social studies topics are under development.  Please contact us to learn more about how BHH can provide professional development and/or instructional materials for your school district.  




 Bringing History Home is a registered 501(c)(3) charity.
