SCSC-Pre-AP Social Studies: Fostering Disciplinary Reasoning Skills

Fostering disciplinary reasoning skills is a key focus of the Pre-AP social studies classroom. This workshop explores the four disciplinary reasoning skills that appear in Pre-AP and AP course frameworks: causation, comparison, contextualization, and change and continuity over time. Participants design activities that use Pre-AP shared instructional principles and allow students to find meaning in primary and secondary source sets the way that historians and geographers do.


Teachers will:

  • Analyze Pre-AP shared instructional principles and World History and Geography course framework.
  • Explore instructional resources that model the four disciplinary reasoning skills of Pre-AP and AP classrooms.
  • Design lessons with peers and colleagues for use in their classrooms.
