CSUEB History Department Partners with ACOE in Educating Alameda County Teachers

The History Department at California State University, East Bay is a partner with the Alameda County Office of Education, which has been awarded a $1 million Teaching American History Grant from the U.S. Department of Education. The grant is one of 15 received by California counties this year.

The History Department will be cooperating with ACOE and the San Bruno Office for the National Archives to extend ACOE's "Words That Made America," a professional development program for U.S. History teachers of disadvantaged 8th and 11th graders, into four Bay Area school districts: Emery (in Emeryville), Fremont, Livermore, and Newark.

CSUEB History faculty will be assisting teacher-teams in acquiring the knowledge and skills they need to help students meet the new California state standards.

"The History Department is very pleased to be a part of this important initiative," said Dee Andrews, History Department chair. "We hope it will permit us to forge stronger links with Bay Area history teachers and with students in academic need. We are especially pleased to be working closely with ACOE's superb Office of Curriculum Development."

"This is a very exciting project for our College," said Alden Reimonenq, dean of the College of Letters, Arts, and Social Sciences. "It is also an opportunity to demonstrate the academic excellence of our many programs at Cal State East Bay."
