Educating Teachers with a Socratic Approach to Core Documents

The Ashbrook Center helps teachers examine core documents of American history through a uniquely Socratic approach in one-day and multi-day seminars. At Ashland University, the Center provides an M.A. program in American History and Government for middle and high school teachers. About 28,000 teachers in Ashbrook’s network have participated in its programs or regularly access its online resources at Teaching American History—a website that earns about two million annual visits and features sets of primary texts that illustrate key principles and debates in U.S. history.
