George Mason University announced yesterday that it has been awarded $7.5 million by the U.S. Department of Education to build a National History Education Clearinghouse that “will focus on historical thinking and learning” and “help K-12 history teachers become more effective educators.” The online content of the Clearinghouse will be maintained by GMU’s Center for History and New Media (CHNM), but there will be offline components as well. Partners with GMU on this project include the AHA, Stanford University, and the National History Center. See George Mason’s press release on the project for all of the exciting details.
