DeTocqueville's Ghost: Examining the History of American Democracy
The school district is partnering with the University of California-Berkeley's history faculty and Bancroft Library. The district will send 90 5th and 11th grade teachers to workshops, conferences and summer institutes to improve content knowledge and classroom practice. State standards will be applied to the school-based instructional program during the training sessions. There will be lesson study sessions and teams of teacher-as-researchers undertaking special projects, which will impact the level of the instructional program.
