We’re excited to announce the lineup for our 2019 Summer Institute. This summer we globalize by exploring the Gupta Empire and the Srivijaya Kingdom, we localize by delving into L.A. history, and we humanize by centering counternarratives with two FAIR Act inspired workshops.  Below you will find an overview of our workshops.

Sites of Encounter: Gupta & Srivijava

June 17 – 18
For 7th grade World History teachers

This free two-day workshop for 7th grade World History teachers explores the Gupta Empire & Srivijaya Kingdom as “Sites of Encounter”, or places that existed in the pre-modern world that brought together different cultures via trade.

History Makers: Women in American Politics

June 18 – 20
CSU Dominguez Hills

The latest iteration of our Teaching with Primary Sources workshop will focus on voting and suffrage, women-centered legislation, and political organizing throughout the course of United States history. Participating teachers will hear talks from renown scholars, and explore primary sources on the Library of Congress’ Teaching with Primary Sources website. Participants will also have the opportunity to collaborate and develop inquiry-based lessons plans that incorporate primary sources. This workshop is tailored for 8th, 11th, and 12th grade US History and Government teachers as well as Ethnic Studies teachers.

The Road to Stonewall: LGBTQ History & Curriculum Writing Workshop

June 24 – 28
ONE National Gay & Lesbian Archives at the USC Libraries
For Ethnic Studies and high school US history and government teachers

We’re proud to once again collaborate with the ONE Archives as we continue to support history teachers with a better understating LGBTQ history in the United States. This year’s workshop contextualizes the 50-year anniversary of the “Stonewall Riots” and looks at the roots of that event by examining the activism that was occurring in California. This workshop will support a small group of Ethnic Studies and high school US history and government teachers who are skilled at writing curriculum. The week-long workshop will include talks from scholars, an exploration of the extensive archives at ONE, and opportunities to collaborate and create inquiry-based lessons.
