Kris McDaniel, WI DPI Social Studies Consultant, is partnering with CESA's across the state to offer one-day workshops on Inquiry in Social Studies.  Based off the summer 2017 Social Studies Bootcamp in Madison, these presentations will provide an opportunity for K-12 classroom teachers to learn about inquiry resources for social studies that already exist, and to work on an inquiry lesson or unit of their own.

Attendees should bring:
-A lesson to "inquiry-ize"
-A device to access the internet and the lesson/unit they want to work on
-Any awesome inquiry resources to share!

Presenter: Kris McDaniel, WI DPI Social Studies Consultant
