Travel There
to Teach it Here

The Driven 2 Teach program is taking History teachers out of the classroom and to the very places where history happened. Open to Utah educators, grades 5-12, who specialize in American History or historical literature, the Driven 2 Teach program gives teachers an extended, hands-on learning experience unlike any other—at no cost to the teachers or the schools.

U.S. History
I would not have been able to go visit these historical sites on my own. This was a chance of a lifetime. I’ve seen the sites, I have felt the passion, and I have seen that men and women who were ordinary citizens felt passionate about something and they changed everything.”
