History-Geography Project Overview

 CHSSP Conference


The UCLA History-Geography Project is one of the sites of the California History Social Science Project.  We collaborate with educational researchers, historians and practitioners to design and lead professional development programs that enrich K-12 history-social studies instruction.  We support the learning of educators by:

  • Integrating research and practice with a focus on discipline-specific approaches to literacy instruction.    
  • Creating curriculum that links students’ experiences to new content and to Common Core skills.
  • Emphasizing rigor, relevance, and access for all students particularly English Learners and struggling readers.

We are devoted to enhancing history-social science education in the Los Angeles region.
