    Hello to AHA folks who are interested in teaching and learning. I received this CFP from the people at the UCBerkeley History Social-Science Project, and thought some of you might have great ideas for proposals, or might just want to attend the conference, which takes place May 1-2, 2015.
    If you'd like to use this AHA community as a place to generate ideas or find other presenters, please do so.

    Fostering Historical Thinking Across the K-16 Continuum 


     May 1-2, 2015 at the University of California, Berkeley

    Keynote Speakers:
     Sam Wineburg, Standford University
    Bruce VanSledright, UNC at Charlotte (Just added!)

    This conference seeks to answer:
    •  How do we teach the habits of the historical mind across the K-16 continuum?
    •  How can educators across all levels support the teaching of historical thinking across the K-16 continuum?
    •  How can new platforms (social media, digitized archives, etc.) contribute to developing historical literacy?
    •  How can we assess the acquisition of historical thinking and literacy skills?
    •  What innovative pedagogical methods are being implemented with great effect in history classrooms?

    We are currently accepting proposals for this conference.  Questions may be addressed to: info.teachinghistory@gmail.com

    Hosted by: Simo Mikkonen, University of Jyväskylä, UC Berkeley History-Social Science
