KHS seeks proposals for history education conference


The Kentucky Historical Society (KHS) is accepting proposals for its Kentucky History Education Conference July 18 in Frankfort.

Educators who have innovative classroom practices or engaging history topics to share with other educators are invited to submit proposals. Sessions should be related to the theme, “Breaking Barriers,” and presenters are encouraged to consider these suggestions from attendees of the 2018 conference:

  • Provide ideas and materials that can immediately be implemented in the classroom.
  • Hands-on activities are always popular.
  • Look at 20th-century historical topics for both U.S. and world history.
  • Share strategies that relate to state, national and C3 frameworks.
  • Focus on project-based learning, document-based questions or other teaching styles.
  • Present on another social studies topic such as geography or economics, or share ideas on how social studies teachers can collaborate or integrate with other subjects such as language arts, science or the arts.
  • Offer easy tech tools for social studies.

The deadline for proposals is April 15. Visit the KHS website for more information.
