This two part workshop is co-sponsored by the Kansas Council for the Social Studies and ESSDACK. During the morning, Glenn Wiebe and Kori Green will highlight social studies best practices that support the 2018 state assessment and literacy integration. The conversation will also include details about the assessment as well as plans for the revised 2020 assessment. In the afternoon, Adam Topliff and Jill Weber will share ideas, strategies, and resources for implementing a successful Civic Engagement program in your building. As a part of the Kansans Can vision, civic engagement is a vital part not just of the new state board goals but of our job of creating thoughtful and informed citizens.

It is specifically designed to assist both 5-12 social studies teachers and those working with ELL students to improve the historical thinking skills and content acquisition of English Language learners. Grant funds allow ESSDACK and CES to offer the training at a discount - making this a great cost-effective way for districts to send multiple educators.

Creating Successful Students Through the Humanities: Literacy, Literature, and Social Studies Robi Alstrom and Glenn Wiebe 5-12 (2,3,4,5) ELA and the Social Studies are natural partners. Yet they are too often taught as separate and sometimes competing content areas. But combining the people and events of social studies with the fiction and literacy tools of the language arts creates a powerful learning experience for our students. What can it look like when content and instruction bleeds across these two traditionally separate classrooms? This workshop is designed for ELA and Social Studies teachers to attend together, learning from Robi and Glenn as well as each other on integrating best practices, resources, and instructional strategies. (Receive a 20% discount if your school registers both a social studies and ELA teacher for this workshop.) More

The Kansas state history/government standards and state assessment are not your typical documents. Instead of focusing on memorizing specific content measured by multiple choice tests, students are now being asked to do social studies by thinking historically, solving problems, and 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 practical 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

How do we create impactful and thoughtful learning of the Holocaust with students? Through this professional development program from the Echoes and Reflections, participants will explore and gain access to a range of classroom content and consider instructional enhancements to support students’ study and reflection of the history of the Holocaust, the Rise of Nazism, and the ongoing meaning in the world today. Educators enhance their own knowledge about the Holocaust, including the history of antisemitism, and build confidence and capacity to teach this complex subject. Echoes and Reflections provides educators with the professional development and resources necessary to develop the knowledge, capacity, and practice required to responsibly and effectively teach the Holocaust. Since 2005, this combined effort of three world leaders in education—the Anti-Defamation League, USC Shoah Foundation, and Yad Vashem—has now reached more than 30,000 educators across the United States. This program introduces learners to: • Classroom-ready comprehensive print and online resources • Sound pedagogy for teaching about the Holocaust • Instructional pathways to help students learn about the complex history of the Holocaust & the rise of Nazism • Strategies to incorporate a range of primary sources, including visual history testimony, to classroom instruction For more information about Echoes and Reflections: http://echoesandreflections.org More

Grades 5-12 The Kansas Can vision describes a successful high school graduate as a civically engaged individual able to share their skills and knowledge through actions intended to improve communities, states, nations, the world, and themselves. To develop these types of students, schools will need to do more than just teach the three branches of government and the voting process. Your kids will actually need to experience civic engagement. But what can that look like? Join Glenn and others as we discover how best to create civic minded students! More
