A Resource Guide to Promoting Historical Literacy for Governors, Legislators, Teachers and Citizens

July 2003 by ACTA

On September 17, 2002, President George W. Bush announced a major initiative to restore historical and civic understanding. ACTA has prepared this resource guide in support of the President's initiative. This report includes summaries of ACTA's two studies on historical illiteracy, the Congressional Concurrent Resolution calling for action, and a toolkit that can be used on the local level to draw attention to America's historical amnesia.
