The 24th Annual Conference

for the New Jersey Council for History Education

Princeton, NJ — The 24th Annual Conference of the New Jersey Council for History Education took place at Princeton University on December 2nd. Sherpa Learning ( was—once again—honored to take part as an exhibitor in the Wilson Library of the Prospect House. During the breakfast hour and midmorning snack break, conference attendees were able to visit the Sherpa Learning tables to learn more about our resources for high school history courses—including the brand new AP World History Edition of Mastering the Essay by Tony Maccarella, a long-standing member of the NJCHE.

It’s always a pleasure to meet and get to know so many teachers and administrators from our home state. Sherpa Learning prioritizes in the input we receive from teachers as we develop new resources and look to improve on existing resources. The NJCHE conference has been an invaluable time for us to connect with new reviewers and to greet those who have contributed in the past. We were especially encouraged by the response we received this year, with so many eager to register for Team Sherpa.

We were also pleased to offer a special 80% discount on our newer titles to conference attendees. Both U.S. History Skillbook by Mike Henry for AP U.S. History and Mastering the Essay Exercise Workbook by Tony Maccarella for AP European History were available for $5. All of the books we brought to the conference were sold out before the end of the breakfast session! Our sincere thanks to all those who took the time to stop by and support our small business.

This year, the conference focused on Equality and Inequality in History, featuring Greg Grandin of New York University for as the plenary speaker for Session 1, and Peter Onuf of the University of Virginia, and Joanne Freeman of Yale University for Session 2. Labyrinth Books was onsite to sell the speakers’ published works.
