The rollout of the Wisconsin Standards for Social Studies includes live/recorded webinars and video blogs. These webinars and video blogs concentrate on one aspect of the revised standards. For the convenience of those who cannot attend live webinars, they have been recorded. In January 2019, these webinars will switch to a video blog released on the scheduled day. The reason for this is to allow for shorter videos with potential discussion points for educators watching with a PLC team.
