Reading the World: Multimodal Access Points to Critical Literacy in Social Studies


Discussant:

In this session, we focus on the role of graphical elements of social studies textswhy they matter, how to identify strong exemplar texts--and how to teach with and about them. In an increasingly multi-modal world, learning to interpret information within and across modes is essential to engaged citizenship.

Teaching Cases to Grapple with Dilemmas of Educational Justice in Troubling Times

Teaching Cases to Grapple with Dilemmas of Educational Justice in Troubling Times


Discussant:

Social studies educators confront daunting questions in this polarized, threatening political climate. Cases about educational justice issues facilitate transdisciplinary inquiry, democratic deliberation among stakeholders, and critical reflection on practice, policy, and the meaning of democratic living. This RIP session supports teachers' use of cases in high school and university settings.

Children as Civic Actors: Towards Social Studies Environments That Support Embodied Civic Experiences

4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

Children as Civic Actors: Towards Social Studies Environments that Support Embodied Civic Experiences


Discussant:

Public schools must be sites of civic practice where students can experiment with civic action. In this session we argue for seeing children as being civic actors and embodying civic action. Participants will view videos of civic actors and discuss what kinds of school contexts make such civic action possible.
