Service to the schools of Iowa comprises a
significant portion of the mission and purpose of Price Laboratory
School at the University of Northern Iowa. Consistent with this
mission, the purpose of IOWA HISTORY ONLINE is to provide Iowa history
teachers across the state with high quality instructional tools and
online access to excellent teaching resources.
In the spring of 2001, the State Historical
Society of Iowa conducted a survey of Iowa history teachers to
determine their specific instructional needs. Based upon the
recommendations resulting from this survey, this site is organized
around 10 “Frequently Asked Questions” which address the needs Iowa
teachers consistently cited when responding to the survey.
In undertaking this important task, Price
Laboratory School has solicited the cooperation and support from
numerous educational and cultural organizations throughout the state
whose interest it is to support high quality Iowa history instruction.
Affiliate organizations help shape the contents of the site and
disseminate information to their individual constituencies.
