Social Studies Professional Learning Group The new Kansas History / Government standards encourage a research-based approach to instructional and learning. But what does high-quality historical thinking look like? What resources are best? What books should we be reading? What tools work best? What lesson plans can we share?

We'll get together at ESSDACK throughout the year, set our own agenda, enjoy great conversation, and walk out the door smarter and better prepared to provide high-quality classroom instruction.

5-12 Using technology as part of social studies instruction is no longer optional. Our students use mobile devices, the Internet, video games, social media, and many other forms of technology. To maintain relevance in the lives of students and to create successful high school graduates, your classroom instruction needs to include not only social studies content but current tools and skills. Join Glenn and others as he showcases content specific web sites and technology examples that can be immediately implemented into your lesson and unit designs. More

We want our students to solve problems, use evidence, analyze information - to think historically. But we also want to be able to measure their ability to do all of these things. What are the most effective methods for assessing historical thinking in a social studies classroom? Together with Glenn Wiebe, co-chair of the state standards committee, we'll learn more about what effective formative and summative assessments can look like. More

Businesses are using them. Higher ed is using them. State departments of ed are using. Heck, the Boy Scouts have been using them for years! And now it's time for K-12 teachers to jump onboard. Using badges and micro-credentials is a great way to motivate, measure, and engage your students. During this workshop, you learn the basics of micro-credentials, explore how others are using them, build some badges, and together we'll figure out what badges and micro-credentials can look like as part of your social studies assessment process.

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. Join Glenn as he highlights his C4 Framework, a practical structure for planning and implementing a cohesive instructional arc that supports integrating social studies and ELA. During this session, Glenn will share a variety of effective resources that encourage high-level thinking, document analysis, and literacy skills. Handouts, online materials and giveaways are all part of the fun! More

Grades 5-12 Whether your school is in the process of redesign or not, it’s time for teachers to get out of their silos and collaborate across the disciplines. 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 bleed 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.

(Designed for Social Studies & ELA but open to all content areas.)) Understanding the lessons of history and its impact on current events is essential for developing engaged and civically minded citizens. But it can be uncomfortable and difficult leading classroom conversations around certain topics. Racism. Antisemitism. Hate speech. NFL protests. Targeting of minorities. We just wish these things would go away. So rather than see these as teachable moments, we sometimes choose to ignore them. But it is possible to have these important discussions! Using historical examples and current headlines, we can not only create spaces where these sort of conversations can happen but we can also begin training students to engage in appropriate civic discourse. Join us as we share personal reflections, explore an effective action plan for facilitating difficult conversations, and build a toolbox of strategies that promote critical thinking and civic responsibility. You'll leave better able to integrate past and present in ways that support a more responsive democracy. And though we'll focus on Social Studies and ELA, this workshop is appropriate for all content areas. 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
