Welcome to H-TAH, the network for Teaching American History Grant Recipients!

This network is for those who have received a Teaching American History grant already and are working on the activities, issues, and content related to the Teaching American History program of the US Department of Education. It is not an official communications medium for the Department's staff, policies, or announcements, but it is operated as a joint partnership by the Organization of American Historians and H-Net in cooperation with the Department of Education. The network will link project directors, teacher participants, content providers, local education agencies, and public stakeholders through discussions, a TAH project link database, documents, and announcements.  Although funding for the TAH project has been absent from recent federal appropriations, many TAH projects continue on, so our network helps to consolidate and expand that remarkable legacy.

If you are looking for a network that is about teaching American history, please look at H-Net's list of networks. This is not the network you are looking for.

Announcing the new Resources tab

Greetings H-Net subscribers!

We are pleased to announce the release of the Resources tab, which is now located at the top of all of our Networks. Prior to the release, there was a Media tab that chronologically aggregated all of the contributions uploaded to a particular Network. While the Media tab clearly had some basic archival value, with the development of many diverse projects making use of this material on our Networks, editors asked for a better way to organize that content. The Resources tab is the fruit of those aims.

Thank you, From H-Net

Dear H-Net Readers:

As our fall appeal comes to a close, all of us at H-Net wish to express our heartfelt thanks to the many readers who have contributed during the past few weeks.  Your gifts go directly to our program services, helping us to staff our help desk, make improvements to our web resources, and develop new features that leverage the tremendous talent pool of our hundreds of volunteer editors.
