Professor Kerber will answer questions about teaching the meanings of the
U.S. Constitution and lead a discussion on this topic among participants.
The discussion will focus particularly on approaches to teaching about the
constitution in the standard U.S. history survey course and suggestions for
resources or strategies.

HISTORY MATTERS: The U.S. Survey Course on the Web is a new site that
serves as a gateway to the Web for teachers of the U.S. History Survey
course. It provides high school and college teachers (and their students)
a starting point for exploring American history on the Web, a large number
of first-person historical documents for use in the classroom, and a range
of teaching resources (sample syllabi, teaching assignments, and forums,
for example). A project of the American Social History Project/Center for
Media and Learning of the City University of New York and the Center for
History and New Media at George Mason University. This forum is sponsored
by the New York Council for the Humanities. The HISTORY MATTERS Web site
was created with support from the W. K. Kellogg Foundation. The site is an
in-progress prototype that will grow as our resources permit.
