Persistent Issues in History Network

Persistent Issues In History NetworkMission

We seek to develop and support a community of master teachers who are skilled in engaging their students in problem-based historical inquiry (PBHI).

We believe that pre-collegiate history study should develop citizens who can critically weigh evidence for historical claims and use content knowledge generated from sound historical analysis to inform their decisions about enduring societal questions.

Based at Auburn University, the PIH Network reflects the Auburn Social Science Education program’s focus on organizing social studies around fundamental, enduring societal questions.

We work with our technology partners at Indiana University to provide the resources and support that pre-service and in-service teachers need to engage in problem-based inquiry teaching.
