California K-12 Teachers

CREEES sponsors several outreach projects specifically intended for California K-12 teachers.

** CREEES will hold the workshop "Teaching Human Rights in Global Contexts" on Saturday, June 4, 2011 in the Stanford Humanities Center. This workshop, though intended for Community College faculty, is also open to high school teachers.

** CREEES and SPICE publish new curricular unit on Ukraine in 2011! The new jointly produced curricular unit An Introduction to Ukraine is available for sale on the SPICE website. CREEES provides a limited number of complimentary copies to California teachers.

In conjunction with the Stanford Program on International and Cross-Cultural Education (SPICE) we hold teachers' workshops on the Stanford campus that brings experts in Russian, East European and Eurasian studies to meet with K-12 teachers to discuss a topic relevant to REEES area studies and school curricula.

In May 2010, our teacher workshop was devoted to the topic of a newly produced SPICE curricular unit: The Baltic States: Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. All teachers received complementary copies of the new curricular unit and one other SPICE unit. Local professors and Stanford senior researchers spoke at the conference, and SPICE staff will conduct pedagogic workshops with the new unit. More information is available in the autumn 2010 issue of our Center's newsletter.
