Local History Course Curriculum Now Available to all Oklahoma Schools

- Bill Corbett, Ph.D., Oklahoma Historical Society Board of Directors President

Every high school in every community in Oklahoma can now teach their own unique community history. The Oklahoma Textbook Committee has added Every Place Has a Story: A Guide for Teaching and Learning Local History in Oklahoma to the state adopted list!

This guide uses the best practices of education and makes it easy for teachers to lead students to discover their own Local History. With the thoughtful use of this innovative resource, Local History should no longer be neglected. The lessons of Local History are now within the grasp of every high school student in Oklahoma.  LEARN MORE >

You selected excellent topics, readily available and significant resources, as well as appropriate material for each unit.  Your book is long overdue, and I believe can contribute significantly to improving teaching Oklahoma History.  Congratulations!
