This collaborative session is designed for district teams or individuals involved in Social Studies standards rollout. There are significant shifts in pedagogy and student expectations with the revised WI Standards for Social Studies. This session will introduce those shifts (formatting, interdisciplinary nature of social studies, comparison to previous standards), provide time to unpack and repack the standards, and learn about the inquiry arc, an essential part of quality social studies teaching and learning. *Future WISSS workshops will assume attendees have learned this material*

Objectives.  Participants will:

  • Consider the three-year rollout process, coordination of available resources, and brainstorm implications for their local district;
  • Take a deep dive into reading through the revised standards document;
  • Understand the Instructional Shifts required with the revised standards;
  • Review the revised standards and participate in an Unpack/Repack of the indicators;
  • Differentiate between the Types of Student Inquiry


Please bring a fully-charged electronic device and your favorite copy of the new (2018) WI Social Studies Standards
