History & Civic Learning
The MHS is dedicated to strengthening K-12 education in Massachusetts and beyond by providing ever-expanding access to our unparalleled collections. We serve teachers and students through three main educational initiatives: National History Day in Massachusetts (NHD), teacher professional development, and robust online resources.
The MHS is certified by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to support implementation of Investigating History, the statewide social studies curriculum, and to offer professional development credit to Massachusetts teachers.
The MHS plays a pivotal role in addressing challenges currently facing the education sector like the need for more expansive teacher training and more equitable civic learning opportunities for students.
