Opportunities for Graduate Students (2019-2020)  

Medieval History - Starting in the fall, you would meet with UCBHSSP staff and the working group of 7th grade teachers to help outline the year of study. As the project moves forward, you would help identify resources and provide critical feedback on the direction of the units and lessons developed. This collaboration would end with the academic year.

Asian History (Southeast, South Asian, East Asian) - UCBHSSP will be developing a summer institute to be held at the Asian Art Museum during summer 2020. The focus of the institute will be on interconnection and trade.
