The OER Project is partnering with the California Council for the Social Studies to present the Saturday morning keynote at the upcoming 61st Annual CCSS Conference (March 4 to 6, 2022). We asked Dr. Keith Barton to preview his talk ahead of his address.
In this video, Dr. Barton lays the groundwork for the conference’s theme of building curricula that promote justice and harmony in our society—and how we as teachers can help students work towards a better world. It’s the perfect way to get ready for the CCSS conference.
Keith C. Barton is Professor of Curriculum and Instruction and coordinator of the doctoral program in Teacher Education and Curriculum Studies at Indiana University. A former California elementary school teacher and teachers’ union president, he focuses on preparing students to participate in the public life of democratic societies. He has worked in numerous settings around the world, including Northern Ireland, Singapore, New Zealand, Chile, and South Sudan. He is co-author, with Linda S. Levstik, of Teaching History for the Common Good and Doing History: Investigating with Children in Elementary and Middle Schools.
