Spring comes anew!

Welcome to our April newsletter! Check out the latest offerings from our sites as well as new opportunities to engage in the creation of a 3rd edition of our textbook, National History Day, and more!

Be Part of History in the Making!
The WHS Press is looking for upper-elementary teachers to help develop a new edition of our popular Wisconsin history textbook. Participating teachers will be asked to review sample text, provide feedback, brainstorm activity ideas, and share opinions on how to craft an effective teacher’s guide. The project will include three virtual meetings (one in June, July, and August) and several hours of individual review time. Participants who fulfill all project requirements will receive an honorarium. Work begins in late June and wraps up in early August.  

If you would like to be a part of this exciting project, please contact our senior editor of K-12 publications, Maria Parrott-Ryan. Include your CV, name, and title as well as the name of your school and school district. We will select participants by the end of May.
