American History Teacher Award
National Society of the Sons of the American Revolution
(SAR) invites all American history teachers, whose
approved curriculum teaches students about the American
Revolution era from 1750 to 1800, to apply for the
Dr. Tom & Betty Lawrence American History Teacher Award.
The award is open to all teachers at the elementary,
middle school or high school levels at a recognized
public, private, or parochial institution. While the
preliminary rounds of the award program begin at the
local chapter level, teachers may eventually advance to
the state and national levels.
The American History Teacher Award recognizes educators who distinguish themselves in teaching the history of the American Revolution. Teacher candidates interested in entering the local SAR Chapter contest must complete the required application and submit a written essay of not less than 1000 words discussing the importance of teaching the American Revolution era. The essay may also describe any extraordinary teaching techniques or innovative projects utilized by the teacher to teach the American Revolution. The contest is aimed at identifying a teacher who is still actively teaching, has taught for at least three years, and who is in the early or middle stages of his or her career, therefore having at least 15 years of productive classroom teaching remaining.
