Eastside Stories: The Inland Empire & US History
October 14 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm
The Riverside County Office of Education and the UCLA History-Geography Project are proud to announce a new Teaching with Primary Sources workshop, Eastside Stories: The Inland Empire & US History. Eastside Stories focuses on the rich and unique local history of the Inland Empire. Each session will feature a talk from a historian which will be supplemented by a model lesson by our teacher leaders. Eastside Stories is free and open to all interested K-12 and Ethnic Studies teachers who emphasize local and U.S. history in their classrooms. All participants will receive stipends for creating lessons and books on some of the topics we explore.
