In partnership with the NYC DOE Social Studies Department and the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture, the Center on History and Education is proud to offer a full day of professional learning on April 28, 2017 at Teachers College, in which educators will explore developing Global History and Geography instruction with a focus on disciplinary literacy.

The morning session will begin with a panel discussion with historians Kwasi Konadu and Anne Eller who will discuss their research foci, West Africa and Hispaniola, respectively. During the morning, participants will discuss how to model disciplinary practice for global history students. In the afternoon session, we will shift our focus to the research process considering the vast digital archives of the NYPL and British Libraries and conclude the day applying our learning to develop authentic tasks aligned to the new Global History and Geography Regents exam’s Enduring Issues Essay. Participants will receive instructional resources and content aligned to the New York City Social Studies Scope & Sequence.
