Join hundreds of teachers, academics and curriculum specialists at the 2005 National Council for History Education (NCHE) Conference "Conflict and Cooperation in History" as they welcome noted biographer, David McCullough to the Hilton Pittsburgh & Towers. The conference runs April 21 - 23, 2005.
Located at the forks of the Ohio, and at the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers, the “Point” attracted George Washington due to its strategic importance on behalf of the Virginia colony.
The "Point" should attract you in 2005 due to the tactical teaching advantage to be gained in the classroom. Attend a myriad of sessions, exhibits and field trips reflecting the conference theme which provide practical pointers on combining content and pedagogy. The conference concurrent sessions also feature four strands; TAH grants, Elementary, French & Indian War, and World History.
Register on or before December 31, 2004 to save up to $40.00 on conference fees.
