UCBHSSP invites Bay Area educators to participate in an "un-conference." This participate-driven event will allow teachers to share and learn from one another with regard to how to approach contemporary issues in the K12 classroom.
Recently, we have tried to address contemporary issues through our Global History Series, lessons that respond to the racialized killing in the black community (housing discrimination, police and protestors, use of media), and immigration. We will share these lessons, and look forward to see how you are approaching issues from climate change to terrorism and from gun violence to economic inequality.
