The Arizona Council for History Education held its annual conference on Saturday, August 26, 2017 at the Phoenix Zoo. The theme for the conference was Taking a Stand.
Through the theme, this year’s conference focused on those who have taken a firm position on an issue and have had a significant impact on history. The theme will foster deeper understandings of historic events, making history relevant to students. With the timing of the conference right before the start of school, we encourage 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.
