2015 Conference Call for Proposals


Missouri Council for History Education

Tenth Annual Best Practices in History Education Conference

Monday & Tuesday, September 28 – 29, 2015

Gateway Conference Center, St. Louis Federal Reserve Bank

 We invite you to submit a breakout session proposal. Sessions may feature episodes in American or World History and themes such as Teaching Literacy in the History Classroom and Teaching to the Common Core. Considering that 2015 represents a number of anniversaries [the end of the Civil War, War of 1812, World War II, the 800th Anniversary of the Magna Carta], we would encourage sessions related to major events in history. We seek sessions on technology use in the classroom, History Day, curriculum issues facing social studies teachers, and other topics relating to content and methodology.  Proposals may include panels, roundtables, and/or workshops sixty minutes in length.

Proposal Guidelines

  • Name and contact information for each presenter – ground and email addresses plus phone number.
  • Information regarding presenters’ experience presenting to a K-12 educators audience.
