Calling all History Teachers! The Kentucky Association of Teachers of History (KATH) is in need of board members for the 2016 year.

KATH offers a common forum and source of information for all teachers of history in the Commonwealth and provides an avenue for members to share news about research and publications, educational activities, or concerns and problems relating to Kentucky’s history community. KATH is a service organization for those concerned about improving the quality of history education in Kentucky and offers opportunities to network and to attend professional development events, such as our annual conference. In this way we hope to improve the scope and quality of history education throughout Kentucky.

Volunteering their time and connections with international, regional or local experts, KATH board primarily meets to organize the annual meeting. They distribute useful information for history educators (using for example, the H-Kentucky network), and organize task groups to recognize scholarly achievement through a history writing award program: the Anita Sanford Tolson Award for high school students; the Thomas D. Clark Award for undergraduates in American history; the Ray Betts Award for undergraduates in non-U. S. history; and the George Herring Award for graduate level papers.

The following board spots are open:

  • Public Comprehensive Universities Representative
  • Research Universities Representative
  • A K-12 Representative
  • At-Large Representative
  • Newsletter editor

Please indicate your interest by emailing KATH President, Megan Mummey, at megan.mummey@uky.edu.

Making History: Controversy and Culture Wars

When it comes to crafting history, perception can become reality, a reality then passed down to subsequent generations.  The challenge is to evaluate sources and ideological agendas.  From Wikipedia to Common Core to more traditional sources such as oral history, the integrity of both the message and the messenger are of great concern.  Explore these issues at the 40th Annual Meeting of the Kentucky Association of Teachers of History.

Planning 2014 Annual Meeting

In Business Meeting on December 10, 2013 by Randolph Hollingsworth Tagged: ,

On one of Kentucky’s most wintery days this year, Friday December 6th, the KATH Board met to plan the upcoming annual meeting. Those Board members present for the brief teleconference were: Pattie Dillon (KATH President), Cheryl Caskey (Public Historian rep), Randolph Hollingsworth (KATH web admin), and Andrea Watkins (Public/Comprehensive University rep). The following items were discussed:

  1. Location for conference
    Spalding University in Louisville will be the location for the 2014 KATH fall conference (if other locations are possible, please notify Pattie Dillon by December 16).
  2. Conference Theme
    Civil Rights was suggested as next year’s conference theme. Again, if you would like to suggest a different theme, please let Pattie know by December 16.
  3. Suggested Keynote speakers
    Instead of having one keynote speaker, we would ask for a panel presentation. After the panel presentation, each of the speakers would then have their own individual break-out session.
  4. Break-out sessions
    There will be 5 break-out sessions in the morning and again after lunch. Each of the key note speakers will have an individual break-out session. The two other additional break-out sessions will focus on pedagogy.
  5. Grant
    Once the details for the conference are finalized, Pattie will submit a grant application to the Kentucky Humanities Council.
  6. Next meeting
    Possible date for next phone conference, week of January 27-31. Pattie will again send out request for dates and times that will work the best for everyone’s schedule. At the next meeting, Pattie will request committee members to sign up for specific sub-committees. A face-to-face meeting in Louisville on site will occur in March or April.
