Are You Ready to Inquiry?

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.

Learn Constructivist Media Decoding (CMD) theory, analyze models, access resources and develop activities for practice in your classroom. 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. This work will be balanced with engaging, media literacy mini-workshops from the Newseum and Project Look Sharp.
