To promote HERB, the American Social History Project’s forthcoming database of primary documents and teaching activities, educators from ASHP will be presenting at two conferences in March. We will introduce teachers to the various features in HERB and the assortment of professional development seminars and teaching materials developed by ASHP/CML over its 30-year history. To mark the Civil War sesquicentennial, we will also model a few teaching strategies and documents looking at the theme of emancipation and the Civil War.

On Thursday, March 17, you can find us at the New York State Council for the Social Studies annual conference, this year held in Rochester, New York.  Presentation times haven’t been confirmed, but we’ll be sure to update this post and tweet specific times when they are announced.

On Friday, March 18, we’ll also be at the Middle States Council for the Social Studies regional conference in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Educators from the mid-atlantic region are invited to attend two full days of presentations and sessions. ASHP will be presenting from 12:40–1:35.

We welcome history educators, administrators, and our colleagues from all grade levels and community and four-year colleges to attend our sessions and learn about this exciting new resource at ASHP!
