    1. 1. Sharing our experiences from TAH4 Petaluma (CA) March 2012 CCSS Conference.
    2. 2. Teacher Leaders: Leslie Ihrig, 5th gr., Petaluma City Schools Lisa Beaudry, 5th gr., Old Adobe Elementary School District Joan Newcomb, 5th gr, Cotati-Rohnert Park School District Shirley Jenner, 5th gr, Bellevue ElementarySchool District Tracy West, 5th gr, Wright Elementary School District Christina Lunde, 5th gr, Novator School District.TAH Petaluma Project Co-Directors: Nancy Case-Rico, Sonoma State University Sue Olds, Petaluma City Schools.
    3. 3.  Elementary consortium project with Sonoma State University History and Education professors. 8 district partners; 47 upper elementary teachers; 8 teacher leaders. Three-year cohort (kept 44 for 3 years) 3 Saturdays within year; two-week institute each summer including a field trip.
    4. 4. • Drs. Margaret Purser and Michelle Jolly wove together the fabric of our history using three overarching themes.• Through lecture and hands-on activities, with rich content, teachers made the connections that bring history to life for students.• All content was driven by the HSS Standards
    5. 5.  Year one - “ethnogenesis” - first contact and exploration. Year two - “palimpsest” – colonial communities. Year three - “heritage” - revolution and constitution
    6. 6. o Ethnogenesis describes the process that occurs when two or more cultures come together.o In TAH, teachers used this term to analyze the continued process of combining cultures, starting with “first contact” between Europeans and Native Americans.o The two-week institute culminated in various, teacher selected field trips (i.e., Fort Ross, Angel Island, and San Francisco Maritime Museum)
    7. 7.  Palimpsest is a parchment (or the like) from which writing has been partially or completely erased to make room for another text. Teachers used this term to think about the layers of history that have not been entirely erased, but are just below the surface. The two-week institute culminated in a trip to Monterey, where palimpsest is evident at every turn; early Native Americans, Spanish missions, Mexican and American influences abound through architecture, culture, and environment.
    8. 8.  Heritage is the stories we tell today about events that occurred in the past. Teachers used this term to examine familiar and unfamiliar American stories. This institute culminated in a field trip to Philadelphia, Plimoth Plantation, and Boston.
    9. 9.  Themes helped to structure the year and cover all the HSS content standards. Focus on rich history content allowed teachers to use district purchased curriculum and “bump it up a notch.” Understanding the “big picture” made it easier to help kids make connections. Deeper knowledge of history created teacher “history geeks” and infectious learning for kids!

    11. 11.  Consider content goals for each session; Careful selection of strategies to use; Each presentation was designed with the (content) standard first; How to use and model the appropriate pedagogical strategy; And then, how to scaffold the lesson further.
