History-Geography Project Overview



The UCLA History-Geography Project, one of the sites of the California History Social Science Project and the California Geographic Alliance, is committed to building a network of teacher-scholars devoted to enhancing history-social science education in the Los Angeles region. We build this network through carefully designed professional development opportunities that focus on current history/social science research and pedagogy.
