The Cold War-Teaching with Primary Sources from Library of Congress

A UCLA Center X History-Geography Project workshop sponsored by the California History-Social Science Project, from July 21st - 24th at California State University, Long Beach.

The Library of Congress houses a treasure trove of primary source materials to engage students in historical inquiry and the demands of the Common Core State Standards. The CSU Long Beach and UC Irvine History Projects and the UCLA History-Geography Project are offering a four-day workshop for 10th and 11th grade teachers focused on the Cold War. As part of this institute, teachers will be introduced to curriculum aligned to the Common Core and will also have the opportunity to develop lessons for their classrooms. Scholar presentations will also be a part of the programming. Successful participants will receive a $400 stipend, instructional materials, and parking at CSULB. There will be two mandatory follow-ups—one in the fall and one in the spring. (Dates to be determined)

The 2014 offering of the The Cold War—Teaching with Primary Sources summer institute will be included in an evaluation of the California Subject Matter Project professional development programs conducted by SRI International, an independent, non-profit research organization.

This workshop is sponsored by California History-Social Science Project with support from the G.E. von Grunebaum Center for Near Eastern Studies
