HUMANITIES OUT THERE: History Workshop Funded 1999-2000
"HOT is an educational partnership between graduate students in UCI's School of Humanities and the Santa Ana Unified School District. Advanced graduate students in history and literature design curricular units in collaboration with host teachers, and conduct workshops that engage UCI undergraduates in classroom work. By involving scholars, teachers, students, and staff from several institutions in collaborative teaching and research, we aim to transform educational practices, expectations, and horizons for all participants."
