Arizona Council for History Education
The Arizona Council for History Education will hold its annual conference on Saturday, August 25, 2018 at the SRP Corporate Office located in Tempe. The theme for the conference is: Uncovering History: Reasoning and Inquiry in History Education. We encourage proposals focused on the theme, although proposals that do not directly relate to this theme may be accepted.
Through this theme, this year’s conference will focus on the use of historical reasoning and inquiry skills to address historical topics that may need to be “uncovered,” including controversial issues, difficult histories, forgotten voices in history, and differing perspectives on familiar topics.
With the timing of the conference right after the start of school, we encourage interactive presentations that will equip teachers with essential secondary sources, quality primary sources, engaging classroom activities, and “shovel-ready” projects. Sessions will include U.S., world, and Arizona history, and innovative ways to teach and share history. Proposals should address the Arizona content and/or literacy standards for history/social studies.
This Call for Proposals is intended for those who wish to present content and/or successful instructional strategies in history. Presentations are limited to 50 minutes. All proposals must be sent to ACHE via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by March 16, 2018. All applicants will be notified no later than March 23, 2018.
Email: email@example.com with questions or requests for further details. Call for Proposals Form.
All presenters must register for the conference and pay to attend. ACHE appreciates your support!
