The Flow of History

Caledonia Central Supervisory Union

The Flow of History is the title of three-year grant initiative under the federal Teaching American History program, funded through the Caledonia Central Supervisory Union. Using the Connecticut River Valley as a place of study, partner organizations and rural Vermont teachers promised to:

  1. Identify major eras and themes in traditional American history.
  2. Establish challenging curriculum in American history.
  3. Interpret local and national primary source materials by understanding their context within and relation to themes/topics in American history.
  4. Develop a collaborative exchange of practice that improves their work and builds a repertoire of high quality examples and resource materials.
