This free two-day teacher training virtual workshop will focus on sites in Southeast Asia and the Middle East during the 15th-17th centuries to align with the CA History Social Science Framework.
This webinar aims to provide area studies content and pedagogy training to teachers in California to help with classroom instruction of the Sites of Encounter model for 6th and 7th grades under the CA History-Social Science Framework.
