Teacher Advisory Council 2020–21

Education Programs at the National Humanities Center work to provide leadership, training, resources, and partnerships that advance humanities education at the K–16 level. Our work focuses on the integration of strong scholarship and content, inquiry-based pedagogy, and emerging technology. We build bridges that put scholars and educators in conversation to support humanities classrooms at all levels.

Critical to this mission is the role of in-service and experienced teachers in providing relevant and critical perspective to our work. The Teacher Advisory Council supports the Education Department of the National Humanities Center for a one-year term of service. Chosen to represent multiple disciplines in the humanities, these teacher leaders accept an active role in the development, evaluation, and promotion of the National Humanities Center’s educational materials and projects.
