Nominations sought for teaching award

By Staff
The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History is seeking nominations for the annual Alabama History Teacher of the Year Award. The Institute, in partnership with Preserve America, inaugurated the award in 2004.
The History Teacher of the Year Award is designed to promote and celebrate the teaching of American history in classrooms across the United States. It honors one exceptional teacher of American history from each state and U.S. territory. (This year, only K-6 teachers are eligible for nomination.)
The selection of the state winner is based upon several criteria, including: experience in teaching American history for at least three years; a deep career commitment to teaching American history; evidence of creativity and imagination in the classroom; and close attention to documents, artifacts, historic sites, and the other primary materials of history.
The state winner will receive a $1,000 honorarium and will be in the running for the National History Teacher of the Year award to be selected this fall. His or her school library will receive a core archive of history books and materials.
The deadline is April 18. For more information, contact Kay Atchison-Warfield, Alabama Coordinator, at 334-353-5440 or kaw@alsde.edu.
