MDOE Social Studies Inquiry Forum (PreK-6)
August 6 @ 8:30 am - 4:00 pm
Are you interested in learning more about DISCIPLINARY LITERACY in the social studies classroom? Join the Maine DOE Social Studies Forum 2018 in August with sessions in Augusta, Bangor, Portland, and Presque Isle. Each location will have one day focused on pK-6 Elementary teachers and one day focused on 6-12 Secondary teachers.
*NOTE* You will only need to attend one session as the elementary/secondary sessions are not sequential and the four locations will have the same training.
This FREE workshop will walk teachers through current research about disciplinary literacy in social studies, provide resources to examine current practices, and provide time and support for the creation of your own unit that can be used in the upcoming school year. Teachers are encouraged to bring members of your department/district and use the day to update current units of instruction with research based best practices.
Each day will run from 8:30am-4:00pm with time allowed for lunch. Lunch will not be provided so participants are encouraged to bring their own lunch or plan for grabbing a quick bite to eat
A certificate for seven contact hours from the Department of Education will be awarded upon completion of the training.
