The Kentucky Writing Project has partnered with Zoom In, which offers a package of 18 short online American history lessons, to offer two summer academies for teachers to learn how to use the units and free access to the resources for one year for participants in the academies.

The lessons, which were developed by the Education Development Center, are for 5th-, 8th- and 11th-grade students and meet Kentucky Academic Standards for literacy in social studies.

Academy participants will learn to use management and assessment features, will receive 10 hours of professional learning credit and will have free access for themselves and their students during the 2016-17 school year.

The schedule of academies:

  • June 20-21, Berea, Farristown Middle School
  • July 25-26, Louisville, University of Louisville
