History/Social Studies PD Opportunities

Integrating Civic Engagement into the History/Social Studies Classroom

    10/26/2017 08:30:00

  • Location: Visalia
  • Address: Educational Resource Services, Aspen Room
In order to equip and encourage students to take active, engaged roles in their schools, communities, and society, the State of California has identified Civic Engagement as one of the “key shifts” in the newly adopted History/Social Science Framework. Students must be equipped with skills to effect change—to participate positively and effectively in the world they are navigating; and, they can be provided opportunities to practice through their H/SS classroom. What might this look like? What opportunities for active participation can H/SS teachers facilitate in order to make civic engagement a reality for students?

Participants will be introduced to ways to guide students in engaging with authentic problems, creating authentic solutions, interacting with authentic audiences, and making relevant connections between H/SS and their world.
