CHE Teachers to Present at MSCSS Annual Conference in March 2012
On March 8-10, the Middle States Council for the Social Studies (MSCSS) will hold its annual conference at the Best Western Hotel and Conference Center in Baltimore, Maryland. Addressing the theme "Relevancy and Rigor with a Diverse Audience," the conference will bring together educators from across the region to encourage the teaching of social studies at the elementary, secondary, and collegiate levels.
Entitled "History Labs: Boosting Student Achievement through Guided Historical Inquiry," the session will demonstrate how teachers can increase engagement and achievement in U.S. history, particularly with at-risk students, with a content focus on the events leading to the American Revolution. Teaching materials will be provided. The History Lab they will be presenting is available at the CHE's website and can be accessed at www.umbc.edu/che/historylabs.
