Rich Cairn & Glenn Wiebe Secondary (3,4,5) The Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources (TPS) Program is making the best of inquiry-based instruction in social studies and humanities accessible to all learners – including English Learners. Project Director Rich Cairn will guide teachers through effective instructional strategies to support all of your students. The course arose from a decade of work by history and humanities educators, historians, experts in teaching English Learners, and on research and classroom practices that support ALL learners. This course will feature exemplars of best practice based on the history of immigration and foreign language communities in the U.S., using primary sources and analysis tools. 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. (Title III funds may be used for this training.) 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

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

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
