Webinar Providing Strategies for Social Studies Instruction
In a webinar supported by the Association for Middle Level Education (AMLE) and the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS), Michael Yell (National Board Certified Teacher – Middle School, and NCSS Past President) will lead participants in examining 10 thought-provoking strategies for creating a different kind of middle-level social studies classroom. The tools and strategies will include practical methods for engaging students in inquiry about content; in developing their inferences and hypotheses, predicting and making meaning from texts, authentic sources, video, and/or streaming clips; and in synthesizing information from reading materials. The strategies are applicable to any content and are important tools to meet and exceed the expectations of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for State Social Studies Standards. The webinar, “Tools & Strategies for Creating Thoughtful, Engaging Social Studies Instruction at the Middle Level,” will take place on April 19, 2017, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. (ET). Registration is complimentary for AMLE members. Teachers may sign up for free as an Associate to be eligible to participate in this webinar presentation.
