History Blueprint Workshops

Workshops that utilize Blueprint curriculum to teach Common Core skills.

Blueprint Workshop

Join us for one of our Blueprint workshops to get an introduction to Blueprint materials, hear presentations by leading historians, and receive practical guidance by experienced teacher leaders to improve student thinking, disciplinary understanding, expository reading & writing ability, and historical content knowledge.

In the 2013-2014 school year we offered ten workshops throughout the state, featuring our Civil War and Cold War units.  We will have four Medieval World Workshops during the summer of 2014 school year.  Dates and locations forthcoming.  At any time, if you'd like a Blueprint workshop specifically designed for your school, contact the CHSSP statewide office at 530.752.0572 or chssp@ucdavis.edu.
