Framingham State University’s Center for Global Education collaborated with the Arlington Public Schools to land a $1 million Teaching American History grant from the United States Department of Education. FSU is the higher education partner in the grant. Freedom and Rights in the American Mosaic Experience (FRAME) funds a five-year professional development project for history teachers. Dr. Susan Dargan, Global Education Center Director, states that during the first three years of the project, K-5 teachers will attend seminars and institutes at Framingham State University and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History in New York to learn about innovative approaches to teaching American history. In the final two years of the project, the institutes and seminars will include teachers in grades six through twelve. Framingham State University faculty will serve as planners and content presenters for the institutes. Dr. Jon Huibregtse, Chair of FSU’s History Department, served as the history consultant for this project and will assist Dr. Dargan in coordinating presentations at Framingham State. School district partners include Arlington, Winchester, Boston College High School, Cambridge, EXCEL Academy Charter School, Ashland, Acton, and Acton-Boxborough.
