The day will begin with a discussion around the revised 6th-grade social studies standards to assist in planning for implementation for the 2023-24 school year. Educators will have opportunities to collaborate with districts in attendance to explore the changes to their standards, share resources, explore new resources, and how to revise the curriculum so that social studies is taught in semester one and civics in semester two.
In the afternoon, Tim Kalgreen with the Indiana Bar Association, will join educators to share resources to address the Civics standards. He will share information about the Civics component, We the People and aligned resources including project-based assessment, and Project Citizen.
Attendees who register at least one week before the event will receive one copy of the We the People Elementary Student Book (this is the book geared for the 6th-grade course). Those who register after the deadline will receive a copy of the book, but it may come after the session.
Attendees will also be added to a shared folder of resources that those attending create and share during and after the session.
This will be an in-person workshop. Participants will drive the discussion to support their needs and collaborate with peers.
The cost of the workshop includes lunch and a copy of the We the People book
Registrants who notify NIESC of their cancellation on or before the registration deadline date will not be required to pay the registration fee.
