As a unique collaboration of units across Iowa State University and the state of Iowa, “Teaching and Learning Iowa History” is a much-needed response to the lack of resources related to Iowa state history education. Despite statewide interest in Iowa history as documented by the Department of Cultural Affairs, there are few opportunities to learn about it—especially history related to social justice and diversity. In addition, the Iowa Department of Education (IDOE) has surveyed teachers across the state and found that there are currently very few social studies education professional development opportunities for Iowa teachers.
