Santa Clara County: H-SS Framework Implementation Study Group for Teachers

Are you intrigued by the new H-SS Framework and interested in exploring how it encourages a shift in your instructional planning and teaching? The UCB History-Social Science Project in partnership with the SCCOE is offering  professional development  to support teachers in the implementation of the new California History-Social Science Frameworks.  This year-long study group will work in a collaborative setting with support from staff from the UC Berkeley, California History-Social Science Project (a chapter of the CHSSP that was the principal author of the Framework).  With grade-level cohorts, you’ll have the opportunity to reframe a course, unit and lessons around inquiry, historical thinking, disciplinary literacy, and civic engagement.
