The new Illinois Social Science Learning Standards will be implemented during the 2017 – 2018 school year. This training session is designed to help administrators and educators who are responsible for teaching social sciences explore and understand the new standards, social science practices, and available resources to help with the standards implementation.
Participants will become familiar with the social science standards by examining the standards and discussing the progression of social science instruction in the state. Additionally, participants will participate in several activities designed to strengthen knowledge of social science practices. Copies of the new standards with literary connections can be found on-line at: ilclassroomsinaction.org/social-science.html. Information concerning resources that will assist in implementing the standards will be shared with educators to support quality social science instruction.
