History-Social Science & Literature Advanced Session, Grades 6-12

Fresno, CA: January 24, 2019

The newly adopted California History-Social Science Framework (2016) calls attention to the importance of developing content knowledge and inquiry-driven approaches to learning, while also building literacy skills and preparing all students for engaged citizenship in the 21st century. This one-day ADVANCED training is for experienced DBQ teachers who are looking for additional ways to sharpen students’ close reading and analytical writing skills. We will implement a variety of practical strategies that teachers can take back and use in their own classrooms. Reading strategies will focus on getting students talking to, asking questions of, and marking up the text in order to develop a deeper and more nuanced understanding. Participants will also be introduced to practices which support the development of students’ writing, especially in the area of reasoning and argumentation.
