The session will include collaborative planning so teachers can discuss instructional strategies and shared challenges with colleagues whose experience may differ from their own.

This session will focus on Regents examinations (Transition and Framework-based) with special attention to the new Enduring Issues Essay. Participants will examine in depth the prototype essay and will work in small groups with provided documents, mapping the documents to the grade 10 framework. Participants should be able to take this experience and apply it to their classrooms and schools. This session will also explore ways of developing the new introductory unit on The World in 1750 and curriculum development based on the implementation of the Social Studies Framework.
