Advancing Student Learning & Literacy


The California History-Social Science Project (CHSSP) is a statewide network of scholars and K-12 teachers, headquartered in the Department of History at the University of California, Davis.  

Each year, close to 4,000 K-12 teachers attend CHSSP programs in person and online; thousands more download free curriculum and teaching resources from our website.
