  • Improve teacher capacity to implement California's History-Social Science Framework
  • Explore disciplinary best practices in distance and hybrid learning
  • Continue to develop our regional professional network


Next Session

May 12: 3:30 - 5:00 pm: Teaching California: Bringing Archives into the Classroom


Teaching CA Collage


Teaching California is a project of the California Historical Society, in partnership with the California History Social Science Project. Expert historians and educators have curated a vast collection of primary sources to develop K 12 inquiry sets aligned to the California History-Social Science Framework. Teaching California takes these resources and has developed teacher and student notes, activities and other tools that will help guide educators through a research based approach to improving student reading, writing and critical thinking.

Drs. Beth Slutsky and Tuyen Tran will introduce participants to the new and exciting resources from Teaching California. Participants will  be provided with an introduction to the available resources, take a deeper dive into the content of select inquiry sets, and have time to
collaboratively explore the resources most relevant to their teaching context.
