Teaching American History Evaluation Grant Tips: FOIA Reading Room
Mia D. Howerton of the Department of Education’s Teaching American History (TAH) grant program recently reminded the H-TAH H-NET discussion group about the Office of Innovation and Improvement’s FOIA Reading Room.

As you write your TAH grant, you might want to see examples of previously funded grants, and the FOIA Reading Room provides you with a total of 13 accepted grant applications from 2008, 2009, 2010.  In 2009, for instance, we provided evaluation services for two of the three examples posted (CHARMS and Northshore).  Although the core of any good Teaching American History grant proposal is a plan that addresses the proven, unique needs of your district(s) in way that integrates evaluation into the structure of the program, it helps to have a menu of options to choose from.  The FOIA Reading Room provides this for you.

The 2011 Teaching American History (TAH) program RFP has been released, and completed grant applications are due to the Department of Education on April 4th, 2011.  Evaluation is an even more significant part of the grant application than it has been in the past. As a special service for Teaching American History grant clients, we will consult with you and even assist in designing and writing the evaluation portion of your Teaching American History grant application free of charge. We will also help you design and implement a needs assessment for your teachers and students free of charge. The clock is ticking: call us today at (570) 744-1618 or email evaluation@grantevaluation.com
