PRLog - Oct. 28, 2011 - America was designed and built on ideas and ideals that are expressed in its founding documents. Multiple studies of test scores and educational experts’ reports confirm that over the last thirty plus years, American students’ social studies test scores and awareness of America’s fundamental, founding concepts are falling off a cliff and may never be regained. As a result, America is in a survival crisis.
American Heritage Education Foundation
The American Heritage Education Foundation, Inc (AHEF) is taking bold and dramatic steps to correct this educational and national educational tragedy. AHEF has become the nation’s largest provider of free K-12 lesson plans to help all Americans, especially teachers and students, learn and understand our nation’s basic and fundamental philosophical origins. AHEF fills the gap of few, if any, text books and few teachers who provide and teach America’s factual roots with unbiased and factual resources. Falling social studies and history test scores have been well documented by the National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) and the Intercollegiate Studies Institute (ISI). To reverse these trends, AHEF sends its free lesson plan CD’s, AMERICA’S HERITAGE-An Adventure in Liberty, to any and all teachers, families and schools if inquiries are simply made on the AHEF website at www.americanheritage.org.
This is an incredible, patriotic resource for teaching and is a $150.00 value! School teachers, homeschool families, and anyone teaching history will receive great benefit from using these lesson plans.
Over 102,000 teachers are utilizing the K-12 lesson plans that focus on America’s primary documents. These teachers instruct an average of 17 students each, resulting in over 1,700,000 students who have been taught factual American history and America’s founding principles based on our nation’s founding documents.
One user of American Heritage lesson plans says that “AHEF lesson plans are a good starting point for our family’s unit studies and for getting together in group studies with other families. The lesson plans spark an interest in a topic and we continue reading, researching, and furthering our education in America and incorporating more plans as the research progresses.”
The American Heritage Education Foundation, Inc. is a non-profit, non-partisan educational foundation (501.c.3) dedicated to the understanding and teaching of America's factual and philosophical heritage to promote constructive citizenship and Freedom, Unity, Progress, and Responsibility (FUPR™) among our students and citizens.
