The Big History Project is coming back to Iowa to offer a lunch and learn about the Project and how you might use it in your classroom.
What can the birth of a star tell us about the ways in which early man lived and helped shape our lives today? What happens when we ask students to explore scholarly disciplines into their thinking about history and the future? Join us for lunch to learn the answers to these questions, and to hear from teachers who love the Big History Project and use it in their classes.
