2023 CHSSP Reynoso Summer Institute


  • The CHSSP invites teachers across the state to apply to join a Summer Institute focused on a curriculum set about Cruz Reynoso, the first Latino Associate Justice of the California Supreme Court.
  • Last year, the CHSSP co-sponsored an exhibit detailing the life and legacy of Cruz Reynoso, which formed the basis for five inquiry sets, including: 
    • 2nd Grade - Heroes in Our Community
    • 4th Grade - California History
    • 11th Grade - US History 
    • 12th Grade - Civics
    • Ethnic Studies
  • This summer, the CHSSP is hosting a group of teachers for three days, between July 18-20.
  • Teacher leaders will hear presentations from leading scholars, learn about how to implement new inquiry sets, and experience working with archival sources.
    • Participants will have the opportunity to conduct research in Shields Library at UC Davis to see primary sources that they can use in the classroom
  • The CHSSP is especially interested in working with teachers who wish to learn more about the following areas: 1) civics; 2) elementary social studies; 3) ethnic studies (especially Latina/o/x history/identity); 4) California history.
