War Comes Home: In Schools

marquee slideshow

How do we learn about the experiences and perspectives of veterans? Do our schools provide space for veterans' voices?

California Humanities has partnered with the California History-Social Science Project—the state’s K-16 collaborative dedicated to providing the highest quality history instruction—to improve how California’s teachers teach and their students learn about veterans' experiences and the issues facing those returning home from war.

Participants of this teacher development program receive:

  • Free access to the online instructional toolkit
  • A copy of What it is Like to Go to War, by Karl Marlantes while supplies last
  • Priority registration for a live War Comes Home event hosted by Cal Humanities
  • Engaging online webinars
  • Cultural sensitivity training
  • A special in-person teaching symposium, scheduled for June 20, 2015 at the San Diego County Office of Education
  • $200 stipend for completion of all War Comes Home:In Schools activities
