Welcome to our summer teacher institute, Dissonant Voices: Seeking Justice in the American Experience.
June 22 – 24, 2010
Presidio, San Francisco, Golden Gate National Parks
Our workshop is framed by the essential question “How does the American Experience contradict justice for all?” We have chosen topics that are rooted in areas of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area and Angel Island, but are emblematic of larger social issues.
Daisy Martin, the Co-Director of the National History Education Clearinghouse, and Associate Director of Historical Thinking Matters at Stanford University, will set the stage with a discussion of how historic inquiry and issues based teaching can provoke students to pose meaningful questions, apply critical thinking skills, and build their own interpretations of local, national, and international events and issues.
