This interactive workshop is intended for upper elementary and middle school teachers. This three-session institute will address the following topics:
- Introducing students to historical thinking
- Scaffolding primary sources for a range of readers
- Developing inquiry-based history lessons with images
- Modeling historical thinking
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 tailored specifically for upper elementary and middle school teachers, but teachers of these grades are welcome to enroll in any of the professional development institutes.
Participants who attend each day of the course and complete the assigned homework will be eligible for a digital record of completion and 1 CEU, issued by the Stanford Center for Professional Development.
A limited number of scholarships are available for teachers who can verify current employment at a Title I school in the United States. Visit this form for more information. The deadline to apply for a scholarship is May 10th.
