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

Using technology is probably already a part of your social studies instruction. But what can learning look like when we intentionally plan for engaging technology integration? When our students don't want to leave our classrooms?

Join Glenn and others as we play with a variety of tech tools designed specifically to create engaged, informed, and knowledgable citizens. Be sure to bring at least one of your internet-enabled devices!

In this new workshop designed specifically for social studies teachers, Glenn Wiebe will share 101 new and innovative tools, techniques and resources for making your social studies classes the motivating, engaging learning environment students will look forward to every day – regardless of their abilities and interests. 

Glenn will share practical, creative, classroom-ready strategies, activities and resources that will get your students more actively involved, strengthen their motivation and significantly deepen their understanding of social studies content.
You’ll leave with dozens of ready-to-use ideas that can be integrated the very next day in your own classroom – no matter what social studies content you teach. 

These strategies can easily be differentiated or scaffolded to meet the needs of your diverse learners.

The Inquiry Design Model (IDM) is a distinctive approach to creating social studies related curriculum and instructional materials that honors teacher knowledge and expertise, avoids overprescription, and focuses on the main elements of the instructional design process as envisioned in the Inquiry Arc of the College, Career, and Civic Life Framework for Social Studies. 

IDM's are the perfect size - not really a lesson and not create a unit. But they all focus on training students to solve problems using evidence and to make claims using that evidence. A perfect fit to our state standards!


During this one day workshop, Glenn will work together with you to create your first Inquiry Design Model activity and provide resources so that you'll be able to your own later.


You'll learn how to best select content, write compelling questions, develop supporting questions, align primary sources and other evidence, and create a summative performance task. During the workshop, you'll need access to your district curriculum, have an idea of the resources available in your district, and a laptop or other internet friendly device.
