There are over 45 sessions, breakouts, workshops, and keynotes at the 2018 Kansas Social Studies conference. Most of those will be led by teachers doing awesome stuff in the classroom. And there are at least four former state history teachers of the year doing presentations.
That’s not counting the current 2018 Gilder-Lehrman Kansas History Teacher of the Year Thomas Fulbright. Thomas will be sharing some of his teacher of the year secrets on Monday morning at the Kansas Conference.
During his session titled Why What Happened in 1882 Still Matters, Thomas will be highlighting how his US history students use an analysis of past government policy debates to create advice for current policy makers debating similar contemporary policies.
Get a teaser from an earlier Doing Social Studies post and then make plans to attend his session on Monday, October 29, 9:30-10:20am in MU 250D of the ESU Memorial Union.
