One of the reasons that Facing History teachers are so successful is because we don’t simply hand over materials and send you on your way. This is a partnership, not a transaction.
After participating in professional development, educators looking to implement a Facing History program in their classroom, school or district can access to a Facing History Program Associate-former classroom teachers- who can illuminate our methodology and help teachers tailor an approach that would make sense for their teaching and bring our material to life in the classroom. We offer instructional advice and direction to teachers, opening more opportunities for professional reflection and growth of practice.
