UCBHSSP has developed an approach to history instruction that invites students into the learning process through the use of their own, and their community’s, history as week as the knowledge construction process. Participants will be introduced to the vision of a Making History teacher, who views themselves as a learner within the context of their school community and its resources, as well as one of the historical thinking modules. In demonstrating the historical thinking module, participants will first apply the concept to their own life histories. They will then explore how that concept can be reinforced through content application and refined in a culminating project. A UCBHSSP teacher leader will co-facilitate so as to discuss how they have incorporated the approach into their own instruction.
