Field Trip & School Program Directory
How to Participate
To list your school program offerings (field trips, on-site, online, or in-school programs may all be listed) click here. You will be directed to a fillable form with step-by-step instructions. You must complete the form in one sitting as it may not be saved. Information from this form will be uploaded into the online directory by mid-October. Complete a form for each program you offer. If you offer more than 4-5 programs, contact Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss how to list them most effectively.
The Back Story
Teach It is an outgrowth of Connecticut Humanities' ConnecticutHistory.org online guide to Connecticut History. The idea was to create an online resource for teachers to build greater access to the unequaled Connecticut history content available in ConnecticutHistory.org. The idea was further fleshed out with input from an advisory committee of teachers and museum educators, the Connecticut Council for the Social Studies, as well as multiple focus groups, and the Teach It website was born.
Teach It will include Teach It unit activities designed based on the Connecticut Social Studies frameworks and will feature short, inquiry-based activities on aspects of Connecticut and local history, keyed to grade level and frameworks learning objectives. It will also include a searchable Field Trip and School Program Directory, and well as other resources for teachers and students.
The Teach It website will debut at the annual Connecticut Council for the Social Studies Fall Conference on October 27.
The Teach It Directory is absolutely free to use for both teachers and heritage organizations. Its goal is to make your school programs and services available to a wider audience of teachers, home school groups, scout groups, etc. This in no way replaces information on your organizational website, it simply enhances your ability to share information with a larger audience. Every program entry will direct back to your organization's website (or alternative.)
