The History Blueprint is a collective effort of scholars, teachers, public, private, and non-profit organizations, institutions, and foundations, along with locals schools and districts, individual teachers, and K-12 students, led by the California History-Social Science Project. We are actively seeking additional partners to:

  • sponsor the development of new units
  • share historical collections and resources
  • pilot curriculum and share feedback
  • disseminate information and resources
  • help develop new online assessment tools
  • integrate new technology to engage students and improve learning and literacy
  • evaluate the impact of this work on teacher instruction and student learning
To learn more or to become part of our team, contact the CHSSP statewide office: chssp@ucdavis.edu, 530.752.6192.
