Using their current courses of study as a starting point, participants will explore ways to change these to align with the Frameworks, paying special attention to the Social Studies Practices (Skills) as we discuss strategies to shift the focus of instruction. These changes interface with Common Core literacy work that middle schools have already undertaken. Participants will engage and reflect in an inquiry experience using the Stripling Inquiry Process and then explore the C3 Inquiry Model, developed in the Binghamton toolkit, and unpack the inquiry template and the annotated inquiries for grades 7 and 8. They will have the opportunity to work on their own inquiries for possible field-testing with their classes and share their inquiries (and possible field test results) and potential course restructuring ideas during the final half-day workshop. Materials: Participants should bring any books, materials or resources that will aid in the application of learning. Laptop, tablet, Chromebook optional Date: Choose one of the following cycles: Jan. 19, Jan. 20, and Feb. 3, 2016 (Feb. 3, 2016 12-3 pm) Feb. 11, Feb. 12, and March 7, 2016 (March 7, 12 pm–3 pm) Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: Social Studies Teachers and School Library Media Specialist Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $637 per participant for CoSer 555 members $765 per participant for CoSer 555 non-members Presenters: Steven Goldberg and Pam Berger Contact: Anna Marie Brancucci 914-345-8500 ext. 3125 abrancucci@swboces.org
