CHE History Labs Teachers to Present at National Social Studies Conference in December 2011

The 91st annual National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) conference will take place from December 2-4, 2011 in Washington, D.C. Six teachers from the History Labs program in Baltimore County Public Schools will present sessions on Saturday, December 3rd. Entitled "History Labs: Boosting Student Achievement through Guided Historical Inquiry," the sessions will demonstrate how teachers can increase engagement and achievement in U.S. history, particularly with at-risk students, at the elementary, middle and high school levels. All sessions will take place at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center.

Corjie Tarlton, Sparks Elementary, and Tina Nelson, Sparrow's Point Middle, will present on Colonial America to elementary teachers from 8:00-9:00 a.m. in Room 202B. The middle school session, with a content focus on the events leading to the American Revolution, will be presented by teachers Wendy Schanberger, Hereford Middle, and Lane Muth, Dumbarton Middle, from 2:00-3:00 p.m. in Room 143C. Finally, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911, will be discussed by high school teachers Bruce Lesh, Franklin High, and Adam Laye, Randallstown High, in Room 145A, from 3:15-4:15 p.m.

History Labs is a partnership program between the UMBC Center for History Education and Baltimore County Public Schools, with funding from the U.S. Department of Education's Teaching American History Grant Program.

Conference participants are invited to attend these presentations to learn more about this exciting approach to history instruction.
