Bootcamp Professional Development
Social Studies Bootcamp is a two-day workshop, rigorous and intense, in a "build your own PD" type format. The first day is full of information and resources. That evening, you provide feedback on what is important for the second day, at which times different groups are set up to work on what YOU think best fits your needs.
District groups are encouraged to attend!
Bootcamp 2020 will be focused on Year 3 Rollout of the Wisconsin Standards for Social Studies - Assessment.
We will review ideas such as backwards design, and discuss formative, summative, local/district, and state assessment changes that will be necessary to help students meet the rigor and requirements of the 2018 standards.
There will be a LOT of work time available for you and your district; we encourage district teams to attend. Look here for registration information in spring 2020.
