History San José supports teachers. We appreciate all that teachers do — large and small — to make a difference in the lives of others. That’s why we are continually enhancing and improving our field trip experiences to align with and support the Common Core State Standards for Literacy. Our unique site featuring historic buildings, gardens, and grounds all contain important clues to our past that students discover during their visits. This year History San José offers increased opportunities for students to build skills as historians, including investigation of primary sources and original artifacts from our collection, recognition of perspectives and interpretations, and empathetic understanding. In this effort, we hope to spark dialogue and help students develop and strengthen 21st century skills including collaboration, critical thinking, creativity and communication. We thank you for your interest in our programs and look forward to welcoming you and your class during the 2015-16 school year.
