This website is designed to help social studies teachers implement recent revisions to New Jersey’s core curriculum content standards by integrating New Jersey content into their American history courses. In-depth online lectures give teachers the opportunity to acquire new content knowledge. Model lessons demonstrate how they might share this content with their students. Excerpts from radio and television documentaries provide teachers with lively ways of telling their students about New Jersey history. A timeline that integrates United States and New Jersey history helps students place state history into a national context. Interactive exercises and virtual tours allow students to learn more about topics that interest them. The Partnership is a collaboration of the Montville Township school district, Kean University, and the New Jersey Historical Commission, funded by a grant from the U.S. Department of Education’s Teaching American History Program.
