Teaching with Historical Thinking

Join UCBHSSP and Bay Area educators for this one day workshop to explore how we can increase student connection to the historical narrative, the history of their communities, and themselves through a focus on project-based learning and historical thinking concepts. Teachers will be introduced to one of the Making History Modules and have time to adapt it for their specific geographic and curricular context.

Complete this Registration Form. This workshop is at capacity. All registrations received after 12/11/17 will be added to the waitlist.

We will expand upon this one day workshop with a one week institute in June. Learn More.

This workshop is informed by our Summer 2017 Making History program for high school students.

 

 

 

 

The MAKING HISTORY Teacher:

  • Asks questions of the past.

  • Investigates the history of the school community.

  • Thinks about who the students are and what histories they bring to the classroom.

  • Regularly tries new instructional ideas to foster collaborative learning opportunities in the history classroom.

  • Makes choices about instruction that empower students to see themselves as historymakers in their community.

 

The MAKING HISTORY Modules:

A. Pre-lesson - Uses personal histories to establish understanding of historical thinking concepts.

B. Suggested Scaffolds - Provides learning strategies and organizers to foster understanding of historical thinking concepts throughout the unit of study.
