1998 Summer Conference

"A Woman's Place is . . . in the Curriculum"

The National Women's History Project will conduct a five-day intensive training
on multicultural approaches to incorporating women's history into all areas of
the K-12 curriculum. The session, August 2-6, 1998, will be held in Rohnert
Park, California, gateway to the Northern California wine country. One, two, or
three continuing education credits can be earned. Registration closes July 11.
Enrollment is limited.

The registration fee is $450, and includes a 300-page participant notebook of
copymasters, copious resource materials, and four lunches.

This will be the National Women's History Project's sixteenth consecutive summer
offering workshops designed specifically for K-12 classroom teachers, librarians
and curriculum coordinators, and gender equity and multicultural specialists.

Participants will learn practical ways to use women's history to address
concerns about educational equity in the areas of gender, race and national
origin. Guest lecturers with expertise in ethnic women's history add to the
multicultural focus of the workshop. Participants will have a chance to review
hundreds of the latest print and audio-visual resources.

the Curriculum" training from the National Women's History Project, nwhp@aol.com
