The Teaching History Conference @UCLA

 

The Teaching History Conference is a biennial convening of a community of practice that fosters collaborative K-16 conversations among history educators at all levels and all sectors. The 2015 and 2017 conferences were held at UC Berkeley, and UCBHSSP will continues to particpate in the planning of this year's conference.

The 2019 conference engages the question: What can culturally relevant and inclusive teaching look like in history and social studies classrooms across the K-16 continuum?

University educators, researchers, classroom teachers, and community leaders are invited to submit proposals that touch upon the conference theme, such as:

  • Model lessons, teaching strategies, or pedagogy research focused on making curricula culturally relevant

  • Opportunities for collaborating with community organizations, such as museums, to explore the histories of traditionally marginalized groups

  • History education for teachers that supports culturally relevant pedagogy;

  • Resources and strategies to help educators fight the burnout that can accompany social justice teaching
