Event Details

The third and final session of the Social Studies Institute is being conducted at Thomas Edison High School on Tuesday, May 14th.

We request that the same individuals who attended Session One and Two.

 

Summary of Social Studies Institute 

During this three session “institute”, social studies leads/supervisors will become knowledgeable with the major changes required by the Common Core in relation to the ELA Instructional Shifts and the implications for social studies instruction.

Participants will develop their ability to support teachers and offer feedback about the selection of materials, lesson design and the execution of instructional practices that create opportunities for actively engaging students in meaningful reading and writing activities that adequately prepare them for college.

In order for this institute to equip social studies points with the ability to impact student achievement, it is strongly recommended that the same participants attend all three sessions.  High School Principals are invited to send your special education and/or ELL Point together with the individual who serves as the principal’s designee for social studies.

Topics during the three sessions will include:

  • Close Examination of Instructional Shifts and CCLS Literacy Standards for History/Social Studies
  • Determining What is Meant by Text Complexity
  • Utilizing Rubrics to Deconstruct Text
  • Close Reading of Text
  • Strategic Selection of Text
  • Research Based Instructional Practices that Support Reading and Writing

Overall, participants will learn how to improve teacher effectiveness as they become skilled in learning how to “coach” teachers to help students read and write like historians.
