The Kansas state history/government standards and state assessment are not your father's standards. Instead of focusing on memorizing specific content measured by multiple choice tests, students are now being asked to do social studies, to think historically, to solve problems, to read, write, and communicate. As teachers, we are being asked to find a balance between foundational knowledge and the authentic use of that knowledge. Join Glenn as he highlights his C4 Framework, a structure for planning and implementing a cohesive instructional arc that supports this balance. During this session, Glenn will share a variety of effective resources that encourage high-level thinking, documents analysis, and literacy skills. Handouts, online materials and giveaways are all part of the fun! More

Students often struggle to understand the increasingly complex content and vocabulary presented in social studies classrooms. Frustrated teachers often feel that it is easier to just cover the information presented instead of working to help students make meaningful connections. New state and national expectations expect our kids to be fluent readers and writers of social studies content. Effective strategies increase students learning of content while increasing student process skills. Glenn will share successful strategies that target the unique features and constructions of social studies texts as well as other forms of non-fiction & fiction. Handouts and materials provided can be used immediately to modify your social studies instruction. More
