UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project's (UCBHSSP) will introduce participants to the new History-Social Science framework, which was adopted in July 2016. A central aspect of both efforts is to support teaches in developing inquiry-driven courses that integrate the H-SS Standards (content and historical analysis) and Common Core Standards for Literacy in History while integrating ELD instructional models.

UCBHSSP staff will provide a one-day orientation to the History-Social Science Framework, based on their vast experience working with teachers on integrating new approaches to learning.

Participating teachers will be introduced to:

  • Major shifts in history-social science instruction as is outliend by the frameworks
  • Ways to revise existing courses so they align
  • Examples of Best Practices adn Examples in Instruction.

The UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project seeks to bridge the academy and K-12 communities to help teachers strengthen their instructional practice and provide equitable educational opportunities to all students, through a model of learning, practicing, and doing. Through institutes, workshops and seminars, and site-based coaching, UCBHSSP facilitators work with teachers to grow their practice. Their professional development approach includes models and trainings for differentiating instruction to access history, with a specific focus on supporting English learners and low level literacy students.
