Description

During this interactive institute, participants will explore teaching practices to facilitate inquiry-based Reading Like a Historian lessons. Session 1 will focus on scaffolding historical documents; session 2 will focus on using visuals in inquiry lessons; and session 3 will focus on supporting student discourse. This three-session institute will address the following topics:

  • Building accessible, engaging document sets
  • Scaffolding documents for different reading levels
  • Approaches for incorporating visuals into document-based lessons
  • Supporting student discourse about historical topics

Each session will include opportunities to engage with Stanford History Education Group materials as part of a large group and in small breakout groups. Participants will learn strategies for implementing these resources in their classrooms.

Participants will receive a digital record of completion. Participants who complete the course and assigned homework will be eligible for 1 CEU, issued by the Stanford Center for Professional Development.
