An introduction to the Inquiry Design Model™ (IDM), a distinctive approach to creating curriculum and instructional materials that honors teachers’ knowledge and expertise, avoids over-prescription, and focuses on the main elements of the instructional design process as envisioned in the Inquiry Arc of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for State Social Studies Standards.
Presented by Michelle Herczog, this recorded webinar describes how Social Studies and English Language Arts Methods Instructors at Schools of Education can utilize the C3 Framework as a vehicle for training teacher education students how to use the C3 Framework to meet the Common Core State Standards through the social studies curriculum.
Beyond the Bubble features new kinds of history assessments that allow teachers to gauge whether students have mastered key historical thinking skills. These innovative assessments, called History Assessments of Thinking (HATs), prompt students to answer questions about historical sources and to justify their reasoning in two or three sentences.
Most HATs can be completed in ten minutes, some in less than five. HATs allow teachers to get a quick sense of what students do and don’t know. Teachers can use this information to adjust instruction to meet the needs of their students.
