New Mexico State University to offer online history course for instructors

It is now required for all New Mexico high school students to take a New Mexico history course. New Mexico State University is prepared to help teachers by offering "New Mexico History for Educators" in spring 2006.


ine course will provide the history of New Mexico through the 20th century, including techniques for teaching the state's history to high school students.

"New Mexico History for Educators will allow instructors to gain expertise in teaching the rich heritage of our state, as well as introduce them to innovative methods to make history come alive in the classroom," said Jon Hunner, an NMSU history professor who will teach the course.

Because it's a distance education course, high school teachers will be able to take the class from their home computers in their hometowns. For more information contact Jon Hunner at (505) 646-2490 or at jhunner@nmsu.edu.
