Introduction to Iowa’s Social Studies Standards (Secondary)

This two-day workshop will introduce participants to Iowa’s new social studies standards and build upon the Building Literacy in Social Studies workshops offered in the past. Participants will learn about the vision behind Iowa’s new social studies standards as well as the organization, content, and rigor expected by the standards. The workshop will focus on planning for an inquiry-based classroom and is organized around the stages of planning for inquiry which include:
● Exploring standards
● Developing questions
● Gathering sources
● Communicating conclusions

Finally, participants will have time to begin initial conversations about what year one of the three-year implementation of the standards, should look like in their districts and classrooms.
