Implementing the New Social Studies Framework Description: This two-and-a-half day workshop is designed to prepare middle school social studies teachers and curriculum leaders to implement the new Social Studies Framework, approved by the Board of Regents in April 2014. 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 engaged 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.
