Inquiry in Social Studies
Coming to a CESA near you...
Kris McDaniel, WI DPI Social Studies Consultant, is partnering with CESAs across the state to offer one-day workshops on Inquiry in Social Studies. Based off of 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.
Tying inquiry to classroom instruction, using Wisconsin's Model Academic Standards for Social Studies, the Essential Questions tied to WMAS/SS, and the Wisconsin Standards for Literacy in All Subjects can create a strong, powerful learning environment for all students.
