Professional Development
2002 - 2003
Calendar 2001-2002


Participating teachers and school librarians will have the opportunity to work with colleagues from different grade levels, to work with nationally recognized historians from UC Berkeley, to collaborate with colleagues on the development and improvement of curriculum by taking part in a program of "lesson study", and to attend summer institutes in which they work with teachers, historians, and project staff to enhance their own content knowledge and to work on lesson plans for the next school year.
