Event description

Description

Focus: It’s all about Perspective…

In this session, participants will explore how thinking like a Historian gets us thinking about the perspective of the author or speaker, whether we are reading a document/source or listening to someone’s ideas. Often Historians think about what (or who) is “missing” as well as the context/background information of the documents, historical figures, or events being examined.

Whole group:

  • Explore the power of role-play to share opinions and “facts” before writing about historical figures, events or documents
  • Explore a variety of poems and songs through the lens of a Historian
  • Practice role-playing that leads to historical figures “sharing their opinions” for a specific event in time and how this activity engages students in taking ownership of their learning
  • Create a song or poem for specific content (TBA)

Grade band break-out sessions:

  • Delving deeper into the day’s learning
  • Examining student work samples
  • Planning for implementing and sharing back to the school and teacher teams

Participants are asked to bring to this session:

  • Artifacts that connect the Bridge of Practice from March to this session
  • A favorite song or poem and/or a mini-bio of a historical figure for the current unit of study
  • Data and work samples for students being studied
  • Your Social Studies Notebook
  • YOUR FAVORITE DOCUMENT, SOURCE, and/or VIDEO/AUDIO SNIPPET THAT DOES NOT REPRESENT the voices of ALL THE STAKEHOLDERS OF THE TIME
  • Curricular resources for a current or upcoming inquiry/unit to support grade level planning
  • Any additional resources to share with the group as part of the Queens South BFSC Resource List for social studies

Bridge of Practice: TBD
