The Kentucky Association of Teachers of History is a service organization for those concerned about improving the quality of history education in Kentucky. Although our name emphasizes history, our interests are interdisciplinary and include the humanities and the social sciences. Members include elementary, middle school, high school, and college and university teachers, as well as administrators and public historians. We believe in collaboration and cooperation among all levels of instruction.
This year's annual meeting celebrates the pleasures of teaching history with a plenary session featuring Dr. James Axtell, Kenan Professor of Humanities, College of William and Mary. The day will also involve breakout sessions for participants from each general level of schooling to meet with their peers, i.e., sessions by elementary and middle school teachers, high school teachers, and postsecondary teachers. Dr. Axtell has offered to meet with interested participants in a hands-on workshop regarding the teaching of Amerindian history.
