Are You Ready to Inquiry?

The third annual (IDM)™ Summer Institute will be in Raleigh, North Carolina, July 17-19, 2017.

Sponsored by C3 Teachers, the National Council for the Social Studies, and North Carolina State University, the Institute will feature hands-on opportunities for teachers to develop inquiry materials for use in their classrooms and to join a larger community of educators who share an interest in invigorating their classrooms through inquiry teaching and learning.

The Institute will feature the Inquiry Design Model (IDM), a unique approach to creating curriculum and instructional materials while relying on teacher expertise and experience. If you are working on implementing inquiry in your classroom, school or district – then this conference is for you!

In this 3-day workshop, you'll gain knowledge, skills, materials and practice to develop and deliver inquiry-based media analysis activities in social studies. Participants will receive individual feedback, reflect with colleagues, and finalize integration plans using diverse media documents and inquiry-based techniques that integrate critical thinking and literacy skills with core social studies content.
