Presenter: Paula Keltner, District Instructional Coordinator, North Kansas City Schools
What is inquiry, and what does it look like in the social studies classroom? This 2-day workshop will explore and uncover that question! Classroom teachers will learn how to plan an inquiry unit, with the time and support to do so during this workshop. Participants will collaboratively work through developing Essential Questions, Guiding Questions, Long-Term and Supporting Learning Targets based on expectations, text sets, and instructional planning that builds on the assumption of curiosity in each student. This time is for the social studies teacher who wants to implement student-centered instruction in the classroom, where students are doing the work of the discipline through reading, writing, and discussing each day.
K-12 Social Studies teachers are encouraged (but not required) to attend in collaborative teams of 2 or more (e.g., PLT, grade-level, etc.).
