Workshop Overview/Description
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.

Workshop 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 (as identified by Trevor Mackenzie, Dive Into Inquiry, 2016) and understand the instructional and outcome expectations of the Inquiry Practices and Processes Strand.

There will be more Wisconsin Standards for Social Studies workshops announced in 2018-2019 but it is imperative that you attend this first day of training for a foundational understanding of the standards.

Pricing is $150 for individuals
