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 Session 1 will focus on scaffolding historical documents; session 2 will focus on using visuals in inquiry lessons; and session 3 will focus on supporting student discourse.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.
Please note: This institute is designed for educators of grades 5-12 who have experience with the Reading Like a Historian curriculum or who have attended previous Stanford History Education Group professional development.
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.
