SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Section 3506 of the Paperwork Reduction Act 
of 1995 (44 U.S.C. Chapter 35) requires that the Office of Management 
and Budget (OMB) provide interested Federal agencies and the public an 
early opportunity to comment on information collection requests. OMB 
may amend or waive the requirement for public consultation to the 
extent that public participation in the approval process would defeat 
the purpose of the information collection, violate State or Federal 
law, or substantially interfere with any agency's ability to perform 
its statutory obligations. The Director, Regulatory Information 
Management Services, Office of Management, publishes that notice 
containing proposed information collection requests prior to submission 
of these requests to OMB. Each proposed information collection, grouped 
by office, contains the following: (1) Type of review requested, e.g. 
new, revision, extension, existing or reinstatement; (2) Title; (3) 
Summary of the collection; (4) Description of the need for, and 
proposed use of, the information; (5) Respondents and frequency of 
collection; and (6) Reporting and/or Recordkeeping burden. OMB invites 
public comment.

Office of Planning, Evaluation and Policy Development

    Type of Review: New.
    Title: Evaluation of the Teaching American History Grants Program: 
Data Collection Instruments.
    Frequency: Annually.
    Affected Public: Individuals or household.
    Reporting and Recordkeeping Hour Burden:

Responses: 128.
Burden Hours: 139.

    Abstract: This evaluation is the first systematic study of the 
Teaching American History (TAH) Grants Program that focuses on the 
relationship between program practices and outcomes. In particular, 
this evaluation will focus on TAH program contributions to teacher 
content knowledge and student achievement. The data collection 
activities for which we are seeking OMB approval are the case studies 
portion of the evaluation. The purpose of the case study visits will be 
to deepen our understanding of the factors and conditions that support 
improved outcomes in student achievement and teacher content knowledge 
as a result of participation in the grant and to describe practices for 
various subgroups of teachers. This evaluation (including the case 
studies portion of which we are seeking OMB approval) is crucial for 
establishing whether the TAH program is working as intended by 
Congress, and for identifying which elements of the program are most 
effective.
