UCB High School Ethnic Studies Initiative

June 12-16 at UCB - Registration Closed

UC Berkeley holds a unique position in the history of Ethnic Studies as a discipline, and this summer the university will provide a special opportunity to high school educators who intend to teach this course.  In addition to concept, content and community building, UC Berkeley faculty librarians from the UC Berkeley Ethnic Studies Library will support educators with developing content and refining pedagogies for their courses.

Literacy for H-SS Educators

June 20-22 at UCB - Registration Closed

This 3 day institute for K-12 educators will focus on strategies to help ELL students gain access to complex texts in the history. We will center student experiences; develop strategies for reading historical sources, vocabulary instruction, and bridging reading to writing through oral discourse; and create scaffolds to facilitate student ability to communicate their learning.

Integrated Action Civics - Introductory Institute

June 26-30 (virtual) - Registration Closed

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, which offers new lenses for the study of course content while building skills and providing the scaffolds needed for meaningful, authentic civic engagement experiences in local communities.
