Teaching With Your Mouth Shut
Integrating Inquiry Into Your 6-12 Social Studies Instruction
What can it look like when we intentionally keep our mouths shut and let our kids dig into our content? When we no longer rely on the traditional social studies lecture to deliver information? And when we're asking kids to solve problems and to think historically rather than simply memorize content?
During this self-paced course, you'll explore the research more deeply, play with a variety of effective integration strategies, and dig into all sorts of materials and resources that will help you as you integrate an inquiry-based instructional model in your social studies classroom.
The course is broken into five chunks:
- Research & Rationale for Integrating Inquiry-Based Learning (Free preview)
- Artifacts, Google Arts & Culture, and Some Very Sweet Primary Sources
- Interactive Whiteboards and Hexagonal Thinking
- Structured Academic Controversy
- Inquiry Design Model and C3 Teaching
