UCBHSSP at the National Council for the Social Studies Conference

We are Booth #110. Come find us in the expo hall.

November 16: Pre-Conference Session

The UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project invites you to explore the history of the Free Speech Movement that occurred at UC Berkeley in the Fall of 1964. Participants will be introduced to a unit on student activism that was created in concert with the 50th anniversary commemoration of the movement, examine how the FSM has been remembered through memorials on campus, and view artifacts in the collection of the Bancroft Library. As part of this extended learning experience, participants will discuss how student demands on their schools have changed over time, how communities memorialize past events, and how they can use their own local context to discuss with students how past events should be remembered. There will be some walking across campus. Comfortable shoes are recommended. Lunch will be provided for all registered participants.

More details about the session.

November 16-19: Workshops and Panels

UCBHSSP staff and teacher leaders will be presenting at the National Council for the Social Studies Administrators pre-conference as well as throughout the NCSS 2017 conference. You can learn more about the conference via the conference preview. Be sure to attend one of the UCBHSSP workshops or panels, and visit us at the CHSSP table in the expo room.
