The Arizona Council for History Education will hold its annual conference on August 16, 2014 at the Mesa Arts Center. The theme for the conference is: Milestones and Connections: History from the Local to the Global.
2014 marks the anniversaries of many important milestones in history: the 25th anniversary of both the fall of the Berlin Wall and the Massacre at Tiananmen Square, the 100th anniversary of the start of World War I, and the 60th anniversary of Brown v. Board of Education to name just a few. These milestones invoke examinations into the ways that history connects across space and time. The 2014 ACHE conference will focus on both milestones and connections by including topics and sessions that appeal to all people with a passion for history. Sessions will include U.S., world, and Arizona history; innovative ways to teach and share history; and address the Arizona literacy standards for history/social studies.
Confirmed conference speakers include Bob Bain:
