NCSS Webinars and Workshops

June 8, 2016 -
4:00pm to 5:00pm
During this webinar, participants will learn the art of crafting resolutions – the process, timelines, and much more.  Participants will also be encouraged to share the challenges they face in writing resolutions. The webinar will also include a lively conversation on how Councils might institutionalize a process that leads to resolution writing, starting with gathering input from the grassroots level.
July 12, 2016 - 7:00pm to July 26, 2016 - 8:00pm

During this webinar series, participants will analyze background information, policy and position statements, and current political trends that will provide them with the necessary information and resources to teach the 2016 presidential and congressional elections. Voting trends from previous elections, national and statewide demographic changes, and party/candidate differences on critical issues will all be carefully discussed. We will determine what the "best" sources are to find out information on the elections and on electoral processes. Participants will also be encouraged to utilize a "case study" approach and to study and prepare curriculum materials to teach one specific congressional election in their own state.

August 3, 2016 to August 5, 2016

Both the Common Core and NCSS's C3 (College, Career, and Civic Life) Framework call for instructional shifts in the teaching of social studies: the inquiry arc, disciplinary literacy tools, writing for understanding, evaluating sources and evidence, and critical thinking. Central to this institute will be the art of developing the right question to stimulate curiosity driven inquiry and strategies for exploring those questions. Instructors will model and teach dozens of practical engaging teaching strategies and tools to help your students meet the expectations of both C3 and the Common Core.
