#11605 Putting the Pieces Together-Civics, Standards and Curriculum Design

The new civics course requirement demonstrates that the “how” is as important as the “what” in closing the civic empowerment gap. Bring your curricular challenges and collaborate with others in this active workshop where we will unpack the new IL Civics requirement and Social Studies standards that span disciplinary content areas to take issues to action. Walk away with FREE resources that can help you incorporate simulations of democratic processes, current & 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.  Breakfast and lunch will be provided.
