Based in New York? Eager to teach the Big History Project? Full of questions? This event is for you.
Join us on February 27 from 4:00-5:30 p.m. at Hudson High School for an information session on teaching the Big History Project course. BHP’s education director, Bob Regan, will be on hand to introduce BHP and talk about how it’s helping students in New York City develop critical thinking skills and improve literacy proficiency. Come get planning and teaching resources, talk to BHP teachers, ask tough questions, and then join us for happy hour at the end of the session. It’ll be great!
Seating is limited, so please let us know if you plan to attend.
What is Big History Project?
- A free, online history curriculum for middle- and high-school students. It’s all online, always available, and ready for the classroom.
- More than 13.8 billion years of history told through engaging videos, animations, articles, and classroom activities.
- An interdisciplinary approach that draws on insights from history, social, physical, and natural sciences.
- A course that puts skills before content and drives student engagement. Students learn to think across scales, disciplines, and perspectives; ask big questions, craft arguments, and test what we think we know.
- A curriculum that’s been proven to improve student writing and critical thinking. Download our 2016/17 research summary for a quantitative report on BHP’s impact.
