We are excited to support teacher learning during the 2023-2024 school year. More programs are being added!

HSESI Ethnic Studies Community of Practice

In cooperation with the UC Berkeley High School Ethnic Studies Initiative (HSESI), UCBHSSP invites teachers to participate in the 2023-24 Ethnic Studies Community of Practice. The theme for this CoP will be “Teaching to Controversy: Conversations with Scholars.” 

Bay Area educators will meet virtually, and work as thought partners to share ideas, pedagogies, and best practices to meet the challenges of teaching High School Ethnic Studies courses in their communities.

2023-2024 Teacher Research Group

UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project’s 2023-24 Teacher Research Group (TRG) will focus on reframing 10th grade world history to center climate change in the context of colonialism, decolonization, and environmental justice and action.  The year's inquiry is, "How can we use counter narratives and global perspectives to center the climate crisis and colonialism in order to support, extend, and challenge how we teach modern world history?"

All meetings will be virtual.

Participants will explore the question - How can students use their voices (and understanding of the past) to become agents of change?

Working collaboratively, students will identify a problem in their community and learn to apply change analysis strategies in order to communicate a solution. They will create a zine to spread awareness and to communicate their solution.
