Access and Equity Session

Access and Equity: This session will address the question how can the HSS Framework ensure that all students are given the tools they need to achieve grade level expectations? The session will introduce participants to culturally responsive implementation strategies, as well as how to best meet the needs of English learners, advanced learners, students with disabilities, students living in poverty, and LGBT students. Through integration of the content alongside rigorous skill development and literacy support, all students will be provided with access to a high-quality history-social science curriculum.

Presentation Team:

  • Kristen Cruz-Allen, CDE
  • Stephanie Enriquez, Ventura COE
  • Tracy Wilson, Placer COE
  • Emma Hipolito, UCLA History-Geography Project
