Do you have an innovative classroom practice or an engaging history topic to share with educators? Consider submitting your session proposal for the Kentucky History Education Conference (KHEC) July 13 at the Thomas D. Clark Center for Kentucky History in Frankfort.

Each summer, KHEC gathers K-12 educators from across the state for a daylong conference to explore content, obtain resources, hear from leading scholars and learn about other educators’ proven classroom strategies.

Your session may wish to address any of the following areas of instruction for Kentucky teachers as it relates to the theme “Conflict and Compromise in History:”

  • facilitated geography lessons;
  • project-based learning or document-based questioning lessons with Kentucky connections;
  • teaching students how to conduct an oral history;
  • C3 lessons using primary sources;
  • teaching National History Day in your classroom; and
  • history lessons that teach students how to confront current issues.

If you feel you have a topic or activity – especially one involving primary sources – that would benefit social studies teachers and supports the conference theme, fill out this form and submit it to Cheryl Caskey by April 1.
