Calendar: Upcoming Conference: Innovations in Collaboration: A School-University Model to Enhance History Teaching
On June 26-28, 2003 The American Historical Association, National Council for the Social Studies, and Organization of American Historians will co-sponsor the Innovations in Collaboration conference to showcase model programs where K-12 and university educators are working together in innovative ways to enhance the teaching of history. 130 individuals from elementary and secondary schools, colleges and universities, and museums are expected to present at this conference, including Eric Foner of Columbia University, a long-time advisor and Board member of ASHP.
For more than a decade, ASHP/CML has nurtured collaborations between college faculty and secondary school history teachers, helping them incorporate new scholarship and active learning methods into their classrooms. ASHP/CML will be presenting a session called Critical Inquiry and Collaborative Professional Development: Models from the American Social History Project/Center for Media and Learning, where we will illustrate the approach we have taken to building successful partnerships and strengthening teaching and learning in American history classrooms.
Panel Presenters: Eliza Fabillar, Education Co-Director, ASHP/CML; William Friedheim, Associate Professor of History, Borough of Manhattan Community College, CUNY; Angela Darrenkamp, Social Studies Teacher, Phoenixville Area Middle School, Pennsylvania.
