This full day event will provide information, instructional strategies, support’s and work-time to middle level and secondary teachers engaged in civics instruction. Following introductory information about the state mandates (especially the 2019 middle level mandate), teachers will be introduced to a variety of strategies that are effective in the civics classroom and that are best practices for approaching current events and controversial issues in any social studies classroom. The example used will center around the question of how Supreme Court justices make decisions. Teachers will be given work time through the day, so please bring curriculum materials and necessary technology to get the most from the workshop.
A catered lunch will be included.
