The 2019-2020 MHS Teacher Leader in History Fellows include eight returning elementary and middle school teachers and six high school teachers. These teachers are all experienced Montana history classroom teachers. They have also received additional training on available Montana history resources and best practices in history education. The Teacher Leaders in Montana History are ready to lead by providing one-on-one mentorship and by offering presentations at regional workshops or in-school or in-district PIR trainings within their own districts and in neighboring districts. Possible presentation topics include "An Overview of Montana Historical Society Resources," "Using Visual Thinking Strategies," "Hands-on History Footlockers," "Bringing the Montana Historical Society Museum Exhibits into Your Classroom," "Art and History: Charlie Russell and/or Plains Indian Pictographic Art," "Teaching with Primary Sources," "Historical Thinking," "Engaging Students with National History Day" and more.
