Working with materials from the Stanford History Education Group’s Reading Like a Historian curriculum and Beyond the Bubble assessments, this introductory workshop focuses on four instructional practices central to inquiry-based history instruction. These include:
- Modeling historical thinking
- Facilitating classroom discourse
- Supporting students to develop evidence-based claims
- Assessing students’ historical thinking skills
Throughout the workshops sessions, teachers will have opportunities to experience and practice instructional activities in large and small groups. Additionally, teachers will work collaboratively to adapt and develop materials for their own classrooms.
