Peter Gibbon Presenting at the Northeast Regional Conference on Social Studies

Peter Gibbon, Senior Research Scholar at the School of Education, will be giving two presentations at the Northeast Regional Conference on Social Studies on Tuesday, April 9, 2013. The Conference will be held in Sturbridge, MA from April 8 – 10.

Gibbon will be giving his first presentation on American Identity in a Global World. In this talk, he will present an analysis of the American identity and creed in a ever-increasingly diverse world.

Gibbon’s second presentation, Understanding War, will focus on “why nations go to war.” He will discuss various aspects of war and “big questions” of the subject that are often neglected in K-12 social studies classrooms.

The Northeast Regional Conference on Social Studies is an annual event organized by the Massachusetts Council for Social Studies. The Conference is designed for educators and vendors, providing the opportunity to further professional development, increase awareness of innovation, build relationships between classroom teachers and professionals in the field, and establish a forum to share and test new ideas.
