The Montana Council for History and Civics Education (MCHCE) is dedicated to providing K-12 inservice and preservice teachers with quality professional development. Our professional development programs come from the National Council for History Education's colloquium model, whose three-pronged approach to professional development helps teachers learn content, effective pedagogy, and appropriate curriculum alignment. Many sessions include work between all grade levels to create a dialogue for how history is taught over the school years, while also including separate grade-level work sessions to allow teachers to discuss ways of integrating content to the grade levels they teach. Professional Development programs are custom-tailored to district needs and provide teachers with resources, classroom materials, and books relevant to the era being studied.
What We Do
MCHCE offers inservice and PIR professional development programs to schools in the state of Montana for a small fee. Contact us if your school is interested in one of our professional development 1 or 2-day programs. Fees for workshops include travel, per diem, and presenter honoraria.
K-12 teachers work together on primary sources during the Biographies of the Nation Colloquium.
