Rethinking the Teaching of Slavery

June 10 and 13-16, 2022 - UCBHSSP will convene educators around the question - How can we better teach about the history of the slavery in what is now the US, and how does this history relate to the history of California?

Scholar talks and discussion of primary sources will be included in the morning sessions (9:30-noon). Optional facilitated and collaborative lesson development sessions will be held from 1-2pm. The program will launch on Friday and then run from Monday to Thursday.  

This program is funded through the Teaching with Primary Sources program of the Library of Congress.

Integrated Action Civics Summer Institute

June 13-17, 2022 - Integrated Action Civics is a model that fosters justice-oriented student voice, agency and civic empowerment in K-12 classrooms. Central to this approach is a curriculum-infused analysis of social change strategies that offers new lenses for the study of course content while building skills needed for authentic civic engagement.

The 5-day virtual institute will include:
● Introduction to Integrated Action Civics model
● Change-analysis models and strategies
● Integration of change-analysis into course content
● Collaborative planning

Teaching the World

June 27-28, 2022 - We are hosting a 2 day virtual symposium for teachers of world history. Each half day session will share a re-envisioning of a year instruction, a scholarly lecture, and teacher discussion and collaboration. We encourage you to sign up for the half day session aligned to your grade level, and then invite all participating teachers to attend the afternoon of Day 2 where we will bring together the collective learning about teaching the world to students in the 21st century.

This program is funded through Title VI funds awarded to the UCB Centers for International and Area Studies.
