History is Important; Pass It On

Enthusing students with the joy of learning is a primary mission of the East Tennessee Historical Society.  A national study reveals that history education not only helps students understand the world around them but contributes toward the development of practical, measurable skills, such as better test performance, critical thinking, writing clarity, and a more mature perspective on current events and civic engagement.

The East Tennessee Historical Society serves a variety of creative programs for both students and teachers. All programs meet or exceed state and local curriculum requirements, as well as the new Common Core objectives.
