Integrating the Social Studies Across World History

November 12, 2016 in Denver

Join us for a day of professional development designed to enhance your skill in teaching the core concepts and tools from history, geography, economics and civics that are emphasized in Colorado’s 7th grade Social Studies Standards. Four leading social studies organizations (Program for Teaching East Asia at the University of Colorado, Colorado Geographic Alliance, Civic Canopy and the Colorado Council for Economic Education) are collaborating to bring this day-long workshop to middle school teachers. An expert in each subject area will help you understand how each discipline might approach the teaching of World History, using the Silk Road as a common topic. Presentations will blend content and pedagogy and you’ll leave with some sample lessons, resources and ideas for activities, including trade, primary sources, GeoHistoGrams and a look at Silk Road communities in modern times. High school teachers of World History are welcome!
