CHNM named among “The Best of the Humanities on the Web” by NEH

The Center for History and New Media has been nominated for inclusion in the National Endowment for the Humanities’ EDSITEment: The Best of the Humanities on the Web project as one of the best online resources for education in the humanities. A peer review panel composed of educators and administrators in education organizations and higher education institutions reviewed the site and determined that CHNM met the EDSITEment criteria for intellectual quality, content, design, and most importantly, classroom impact.

EDSITEment is a partnership between the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Council of the Great City Schools, MarcoPolo Foundation and the National Trust for the Humanities. EDSITEment provides resources for teachers, students, and parents searching for high-quality material on the Internet in subjects such as literature and language arts, foreign languages, art and culture, and history and social studies.
