NCSS-PIER Conference
Innovative Approaches to the
Teaching of World History

July 14 - 16, 2010

Participants in this intensive three-day workshop will discuss and experience innovative approaches to both the content and the pedagogy of the teaching of world history. This is the second world history workshop co-sponsored by the National Council for the Social Studies and the Programs in International Educational Resources (PIER) of the MacMillan Center at Yale University. Faculty from Yale and other universities and master high school and middle school teachers of world history will discuss the most recent research information and teaching techniques relating to the teaching of world history and world cultures at both high school and middle school levels. Michael Yell, past-president of NCSS, will present incredibly imaginative social studies teaching strategies that are effective in all history and social studies classes.

Registration fee for the three-day conference is $350, and includes tuition, materials, breakfast, and coffee during the day. For lunch, there are numerous excellent, fast, and inexpensive canteen trucks near Luce Hall, specializing in international foods; and for dinner, participants are encouraged to sample one or more of the numerous international restaurants in New Haven. Sponsored by PIER, the MacMillan Center, the National Council for the Social Studies, and the U.S. Department of Education through Title VI National Resource Center grants.
