Professional Learning and Instructional Resources

 

Teaching the Framework.  Join us as the CHSSP team will introduce the new California History-Social Science Framework to educators and administrators throughout the state.   Stay tuned and check back often as we schedule many more events to begin helping California’s teachers implement the new HSS Framework. 

HSS Adoption Resources.  As you prepare to review, pilot, and adopt instructional materials that align with California’s new History-Social Science Framework, we hope to provide you with the tools you’ll need to conduct a review of available instructional materials.

The History Blueprint aims to revolutionize history instruction. It combines curriculum, assessment tools, student literacy support, and teacher professional development, aligned to the Common Core State Standards.

Teaching the Common Core is a series of webinars for teachers and administrators seeking to align their instruction with the Common Core State Standards.  In addition, each of the CHSSP's regional sites offers Common Core programs for local schools and districts.

Teaching with Primary Sources from the Library of Congress includes both introductory and advanced programs designed to promote the use of inquiry-based lessons using primary sources, aligned with the Common Core State Standards.

Environmental Literacy Webinars highlight elements of the  California HSS Standards and recently adopted Framework that relate to the development of environmental literacy. The webinars will run from October 2016-February 2017 and will introduce the California Environmental Principles and Concepts and provide examples of how the EP&Cs are appropriate and useful tools for addressing the history-social science discipline.
