ELA Professional Learning Opportunities



TCOE Welcomes Chip Brady - DBQ Project

    10/04/2018 08:30:00

  • Location: Visalia
  • Address: 7000 W Doe Avenue, Elderwood Room
Cross-Curricular Professional Learning Opportunity
HSS and ELA

TCOE is partnering with Chip Brady of The DBQ Project once again! Document-Based Questions (DBQ) promote and support transformational change by providing teachers with materials that blend educational best practices with engaging historical inquiry. Come join us for a joint History-Social Science/English Language Arts DBQ experience through which primary and secondary source analysis skills are brought to the forefront through engaging, high-interest inquiry lessons.

As inquiry is one of the key shifts in California’s new History-Social Science Framework, and as English Language Arts instruction is oft guided by Essential Questions, HSS and ELA instructors alike are invited to participate in inquiry that weaves reading, interpretation, analysis, argument writing, speaking, and listening opportunities into fabulously fun, challenging, interactive learning experiences. Elements of a powerful DBQ essay will be emphasized as teachers are introduced to strategies they can use to promote strong, evidence-based writing.
