640 Mason Street, Golden Gate National Recreation Area
San Francisco, CA

Elaine Elinson will speak on the third day of "Dissonant Voices: Reclaiming Lost Narratives in American History," a 3-day teachers institute sponsored by the National Park Service. 

The goal of this institute for Social Studies teachers is to provide useful and practical ideas for implementing Social Studies field-based education through learning activities and research or service projects. 

The institute is framed by the essential question: "What's at stake when we teach untaught histories?"  Institute topics are rooted in the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, Port Chicago Naval Magazine National Memorial, and the San Francisco Maritime National Park, and are emblematic of larger social issues.

This is a free institute for secondary school Social Studies teachers.  An application form is required to participate.  For more information please click this link.
