Bio: Professor Chauncey Monte-Sano from the School of Education at the University of Michigan presents a webinar on building students' historical thinking and literacy skills and using primary sources with the Common Core State Standards. This presentation is designed for history and social studies teachers but is open to all interested educators.
A former high school history teacher and National Board Certified teacher, Dr. Monte-Sano is co-author of Reading Like a Historian: Teaching Literacy in Middle and High School History Classrooms. She was the recipient of the 2011 American Educational Association Division K Early Career Award and the 2007 Larry Metcalf Dissertation Award from the National Council of the Social Studies. She earned her PhD at Stanford University where she was a founding member of the Stanford History Education Group and was part of the team that created the award-winning website, Historical Thinking Matters.
Chauncey Monte-Sano's scholarship centers on the teaching and learning of historical writing. She examines how adolescents learn to write reasoned historical arguments; develops history curriculum that supports students' writing; and studies how teachers learn to teach historical thinking, reading, and writing. Her current teaching emphasizes pre-service teacher education and professional development. She prepares novices for teaching history as inquiry and collaborates with veteran history teachers as they work to integrate literacy instruction and historical thinking into their classrooms via instruction and assessment. She has worked with teachers at individual schools and large school districts through a variety of projects in urban and suburban settings across the country.
