The mission of the Chicago Metro History Education Center (CMHEC) is to spark students’ interest in the study of history, help them build high-level thinking skills, engage them in civic life, and foster their intellectual self-confidence.


CMHEC fulfills this mission and improves history education by providing:

  • yearlong student programs, such as the Chicago Metro History Fair, that employ inquiry- and project-based approaches to the study of local and community history and use students’ natural curiosity to build their research and critical-thinking skills;
  • ongoing, long-term professional development programs for teachers that promote the use of inquiry- and project-based teaching methods; and
  • high-quality curriculum materials that support critical- and historical-thinking skills through the use of primary and secondary sources.
