Discover tools and strategies to guide the planning of inquiry within the 6-12 classroom! The new Illinois Learning Standards for Social Science emphasize the use of inquiry in the classroom. In addition to discussing what inquiry is and why it’s important, this session will focus on how to engage students in the social sciences using a five-stage inquiry process. As each stage is discussed, a variety of strategies will be provided.

The afternoon of this full-day training will be a chance to begin to incorporate what you’ve learned into your classroom and network with other colleagues from the area. Planning and work time will be provided with the opportunity to break up by grade level to collaborate and begin planning a unit to use this school year. Presenters will be available to provide guidance and answer questions as participants work. To maximize the effectiveness of your afternoon, please bring or have in mind curricular materials that you’d like to adapt into a unit of inquiry.
