About the Presenter:
Annie Evans is the Director of Education and Outreach for New American History at the University of Richmond. She feels most at home engaging with teachers and students both in and outside of the classroom, where she has spent over half her life teaching history, civics, and geography. With over 30 years of classroom and educational leadership experience, she designs curricula and facilitates professional learning for K-16 teachers and museum educators, focusing on Historical Thinking Skills, GeoLiteracy, Instructional Coaching, Project and Place-Based Learning, and Performance Assessments.
Embracing inquiry and place-based learning as both a young learner and later a teacher, she continues to serve as co-coordinator of the Virginia Geographic Alliance and is a National Geographic Grosvenor Teacher Fellow and Certified Educator.
Exploring new landscapes, historic sites, or museums is her “happy place,” and she hopes New American History will inspire the next generation of educators, public historians, and engaged citizens.
New American History is led by Dr. Ed Ayers with generous support from the University of Richmond.
