Our Mission

Advocate and advance the study and teaching of history in schools throughout the state; Encourage and support the development and implementation of meaningful and effective history curriculum and instruction; Provide a program of professional activities for history educators and students; Provide for educational and professional interaction among those with an interest in history.

I helped found OKCHE because I saw the need for a local organization that would support the mission of NCHE by reaching out to Oklahoma schools and teachers in furthering and expanding the teaching of history.
