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
