SALEM in History: The Science and Art of Learning from Evidence and Materials in History is a content-based, professional development program open to teachers of American history in the Salem Public School district. As a joint effort of the Salem Public Schools, Salem State College, the Peabody Essex Museum and the National Park Service, SALEM in History aims to increase the depth, breadth and quality of teachers' knowledge and understanding of United States history, and provide teachers with the training, materials and support necessary to apply this new knowledge and understanding in their classrooms. SALEM in History is funded by a three-year Teaching American History grant from the U.S. Department of Education.
