Register For the WSCSS K-8 Conference!

WSCSS Winter K-8 Conference

February 2, 2019 at the Washington State History Museum in Tacoma

Who Will Tell Your Story?

In this time of divisiveness how do we hear each other? Who speaks for marginalized groups? How can we understand each other?

Reaching out to students of underrepresented groups is one of the important functions of educators in classrooms. This program will focus on ways of doing that with greater understanding. Who will tell your story?

Highlights of the day include: 

  • Sondra Segunda Cunningham - Haida author and artist

  • Dori Yang - Author of The Forbidden Temptation of Baseball

  • Tony Jonas - Working with Densho interviews

  • Patty Shelton and Nancy Lenihan - New Guidelines for Washington Social Studies

  • Professor Turan Kayaoglu - Muslims in America

  • Regina Ferguson - Broadview Buddies

  • Patty Shelton and Amber Anderson - Celilo Falls Curriculum

  • Speakers from the Mockingbird Society representing homeless youth

  • Time in the museum to visit Step into my Shoes Migration Station as well as labs and history boxes!
