UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project Integrated Action Civics Workshop Series

Action Civics

Event Date


UC Berkeley History-Social Science Project, Integrated Action Civics Workshop Series (2022-23)

Join us in our Saturday workshop series to learn about the Integrated Action Civic framework and strategies.

The Integrated Action Civics Project has developed a unique framework that explicitly introduces students to a variety of civic action concepts and strategies through the study of their History, Ethnic Studies, and Environmental Justice course content.

In this 5 part Saturday morning workshop series, we will introduce strategies that can be integrated throughout your current curriculum to help students explore their sense of self, understand how power operates in historical and contemporary contexts, analyze the role of stakeholders, and learn about the ways that organizers advocate for and create social change

Although this approach is being adopted by Ethnic Studies and History-Social Studies teachers across the K-12 grade range, this workshop series is especially tailored for 6-12 teachers.
