This program will look at efforts to build a statewide network of historians, archivists and educators for the promotion of authentic history education that elevates the voices of the underrepresented, uses historical records, and develops the next generation of active and engaged New York State citizens. The conversation will focus on applying a regional approach to this work given the demographic and geographic diversity of New York State and the NYS Archives Partnership Trust’s new website.
Featured speakers include:
- Dr. Kristi Fragnoli, President, New York Council for History Education (NYCHE) and Professor, Lally School of Education, College of St. Rose;
- Jennifer Hesseltine, North Country Liaison and K-12 Education Consultant & Strategist;
