Amy Steadman, a Derby North Middle School teacher, has been nominated for the Hannah E. (Liz) MacGregor Teacher of the Year History Teacher Award.
The award is given to one middle and one high school teacher annually. Steadman is the junior division nominee from Kansas.
Two $5,000 awards are presented to teachers who demonstrate a commitment to engaging students in historical learning through innovative use of primary sources, implementation of active learning strategies that foster historical thinking skills and participation in the National History Day Contest.
The two national winners will be chosen by a team of teachers and historians. Nominees’ work must clearly illustrate the development and use of creative teaching methods that interest students in history and help them make exciting discoveries about the past.
The two national winners will be announced on National History Day, June 13, 2019.
