Biography

Ryan Hughes teaches courses in elementary school social studies methods focused on preparing early career teachers to teach social studies through inquiry. His research interests include students’ disciplinary thinking in history, inquiry pedagogy, and how students connect their study of the past to their own lives and identities in the present. His most recent research project explored how third grade students in the Midwest learned difficult African American history (i.e., enslavement) through inquiry. A native of the San Francisco Bay Area, Ryan taught elementary school in San Francisco for eight years prior to his doctoral studies.
