Day 1: Intro to Teaching with DBQs: Engaging Students in Historical Inquiry and Thinking (F2F) (3-12 SS/ELAR) (June 11th, 2024 9a-4pm)

This workshop supports ELAR and Social Studies teachers grades 3-12.

Important Session Information:

Looking for ways to teach history or ELAR through an inquiry approach? Looking for resources that allow students to investigate historical questions from a variety of perspectives? Looking for strategies to engage students with primary sources and critical thinking? Document-based questions (DBQs) are often used as a way to assess a student's historical and analytical thinking skills and argumentative writing abilities. Using engaging questions and primary sources from multiple perspectives, DBQs can also be used to teach historical content, literacy, and thinking skills in a student-centered approach. Differentiation for the unique needs of all learners is a cornerstone of this method. This workshop will provide strategies, resources, and approaches for teaching with DBQs. Note: This session supports 3rd-12th grade social studies and/or ELAR teachers.
