Oregon Council of the Social Studies Fall Conference

Hello fellow Social Studies educators,

For those of you who have not met me, my name is John Zingale and I am a former UP MAT grad from this past year.  While on my journey to become a Social Studies teacher I had the pleasure to meet Peter Pappas through my Methods teacher and a couple of EdCampPDX’s.

I am currently teaching Social Studies and Language Arts at iTech Prep Middle School in Vancouver, Washington.  I am teaching Social Studies in a STEM & project-based environment.  I am also a member of the Oregon Council of the Social Studies (OCSS) and I am here to promote our fall conference which is this next Saturday, October 5th.  At the conference I am presenting the research that I conducted while at University of Portland last year.  My topic is iHistory and integrating Digital Storytelling and Apple iPads into Social Studies classrooms.

I hope that you might be able to come and enjoy a day of exploring different Social Studies content and networking.  You can find out more information here.  Attached is a PDF with info on the fall conference as well.


Thanks for your time,

– John M. Zingale
