Common Core Learning Standards & Assessments - Social Studies

Students as Historians: Using Primary Sources in the Classroom Description: This workshop will provide an opportunity for teachers to locate primary source materials that are key components of NYS Social Studies Framework, Inquiry-based student activities and curriculum projects. Participants will be introduced to an extensive collection of “memories,” audio, video, image and print resources that are rich with possibilities for creating Inquiry activities and sparking class discussion and debate. With instant digital access to historical photos, films, audio recordings, advertisements, maps, and text resources in the humanities, students will think like historians: question, make unique observations, analyze, and even create new interpretations of historical events and issues. Field-tested activities, projects and presentations that colleagues have created, will be offered that can be modified to fit a variety of curricular goals for all grade levels, including “actual” cultural and historical artifacts that serve as a foundation for independent research. The Goals of the workshop are: • To understand the relationship of Inquiry-based Learning, Common Core Standards and Primary Sources • To differentiate between primary and secondary resources • To locate relevant, high-quality multi-media cultural and historical materials that support project goals • To develop curriculum strategies to enhance students’ ability to observe, question and analyze primary source materials Date: Nov. 5, 2015 Time: 8 am registration and coffee, 8:30 am-3 pm program, lunch on your own Audience: School Library Media Specialists, social studies and ELA teachers Location: SWBOCES, 450 Mamaroneck Avenue, 3rd Floor, Harrison, NY 10528 Fee: $239 per participant Presenter: Phyllis DiBianco Contact: Janet Jamal 914-345-8500, ext. 3122 jjamal@swboces.org Teaching for Inquiry: The Link to ELA Common Core and Social Studies Framework Description: Inquiry, researching to deepen understanding, is a K-12 Literacy and Social Studies proficiency at the heart of the Common Core State Standards.
