2018 TeachFest Dream Team Scores Big

On February 1st and 2nd thirty six social studies teachers (grade 6-12) from throughout the state gathered at the 2018 TeachFest to focus on creating social studies lessons that engage students with content. This collaborative effort was an enormous success thanks to everyone involved.

The curriculum will become rigorous and engaging.  It will encourage students to think, read, and act like historians, and the activities that we create will engage all students.” – Mr. Ackerman, World History and Sociology teacher from Roswell High School and member of 2018 Social Studies Dream Team.

Learn more about TeachFest through the NMPED Instructional Materials page.
