#11580 Civics is Back! An Introduction to the IL Civics Requirement & Empowering Students through Evaluating Sources and Using Evidence

Civics is Back!:  The new civics course requirement demonstrates that the “how” is as important as the “what” in closing the civic engagement gap.  Unpack the new requirement and walk away with FREE resources that can help you incorporate simulations of democratic processes, current and controversial issues and service learning into your current practice.  Explicit connections will be made to the IL Social Studies Standards, the Common Core State Standards and the Danielson Framework for Effective Teaching.  Appropriate for grades 9-12.

Evaluating Sources and using evidence:  The new IL Social Studies Standards require students to evaluate sources and use evidence to support inquiry.  Engage with strategies such as Socratic Seminar and Structured Academic Controversy to facilitate student development of the knowledge, skills and dispositions for success in college, career and civic life.  Explicit connections will be made to the IL Social Studies Standards, the Common Core State Standards and the Danielson Framework for Effective Teaching.  Appropriate for grades 6-12
