Background In response to the State mandate that World History be made part of the standard curriculum in public school at all levels the Department of History at the University of Washington offered to sponsor year long seminar for faculty and teachers. The seminar will be offered to the teachers and faculty in the Seattle Public Schools and will focus on the topic of World History Trends. The goal of the seminar is to offer opportunities for dialogue and partnership among faculty and teachers in history. The dialogues will focus on the recent trends in research in the area of world history; revisions of the view of regional histories; the ways in which the University’s world history program has analyzed the latest developments in world history and translated it into undergraduate curriculum; and the methodologies through which the lessons learned at this level have implications for instruction in the public schools. Thus the seminar will begin with discussion of scholarship and research and move to consideration of strategies for translating scholarship into curriculum. The seminar will complement the current efforts of the School's outreach program History For All and expand its reach into history and social science classrooms. It also parallels the efforts of the campus's Center for Partnerships CFP to establish collaborative efforts with Seattle public school teachers so that students in this overwhelmingly immigrant dominated school district are better equipped with the skills that they will need to be eligible for admission to college in general and the University of Washington particular. The University of Washington has well established program of outreach to Seattle public schools already in place. However the funding for the initiative outlined here is not available from local sources alone. The project activities will include. A two semester series of seminars with high school teachers and History Faculty three sessions per semester to discuss recent research in key areas of World History and strategies for disseminating research into curriculum Development of History For All Workshops to support teaching of World History in public schools Development of curriculum packets to complement History For All workshops Instructional Technology seminars are offered to help teachers relate to and use the latest techniques in online education
