The Chicago Metro History Education Center promotes an approach to history education based on local and community history, project and inquiry based methods of learning, and the use of primary as well as secondary sources. This approach is distinguished by student-centered initiative, cooperative learning, and cross—disciplinary thinking. Through academic competitions, family and community history projects, teacher training, and educational materials, CMHEC aims to revitalize the learning and teaching of history in the Chicago metropolitan area, to encourage the development of critical thinking and core learning skills, and to foster increased civic interest and responsibility.
