Appendix D: External Grants

In October 2002, the United States Department of Education awarded full funding of $983,227 for the three-year "Raising Student Achievement in American History" project. I initiated pursuit of this grant in May after learning of the availability of this grant intended to provide professional development activities for social studies teachers to significantly enhance their abilities to teach American history. I invited colleagues from the departments of education and political science at the University of Memphis to help design a comprehensive array of programs, courses, symposia, workshops and institutes for history teachers in the city's low performing schools. The team that ultimately wrote the application consisted of these university faculty, Memphis City Schools administrators and staff, and representatives of "Facing History and Ourselves," the National Writing Board and the National Civil Rights Museum. I am the Academic Director for the grant; Dr. Kenneth Holland is the Project Director.
