UCI History Project
The UC Irvine History Project provides an institutional framework for collaboration between the UCI History Department and K-12 history-social science teachers in Orange County. The UCI History Project is dedicated to the mission of providing a space for history teachers at varying points in their career, from credential candidates to veteran teachers, to engage in high-quality professional development. Teacher participants will experience a collaborative, scholarly environment that supports the development of historical thinking, content knowledge, and pedagogical expertise. To this end, the UCI History Project staff, which includes scholars and teacher leaders, are dedicated to building a model of professional practice within their own site in order to demonstrate the habits of mind, attitudes, and behaviors necessary to continuously improve the way history is taught, as well as to more deeply understand and appreciate the discipline of history itself.
For more information, please contact Dr. Nicole Gilbertson, Site Director, or Philip Ninomiya, Academic Program Coordinator.
