Cicero - History Beyond the Textbook™


Helping Students Learn American History with CICERO

CICERO delivers a variety of resources available to students through a student-dedicated login access to this web site. Students can find homework assignments, guided readings, additional classroom activities, and they can listen to period related music, download podcasts, explore interactive maps of historical events, meet historical heroes and much more.

CICERO's innovative approach will dramatically increase students' comprehension of historical events, personalities, and issues. In addition, with CICERO, students will strengthen their critical thinking, reading and understanding skills that are crucial to their overall academic achievement.

CICERO's resources have been used as part of the American Institute for History Education’s TAH Grant Fellowship program that has proven to increase students’ academic achievement.
