78. Implementing the New Social Studies Framework Changes in My Global Studies Classroom

Program: Support Services: General Professional Development

Dates: 8/23/2016

The new Social Studies Framework has great implications for Global Studies teachers. The new Regents exam will begin in June 2018.

Students will be expected to apply content in meaningful ways. This workshop series will focus on how to give students the capacity to construct arguments, make claims, and cite evidence from historical sources in Global Studies. The first session of this five-part series will focus on exploring the new format and skills being tested on the new Global assessment. To continue the work going forward, sessions during the school year will be facilitated to better map skills and content specific to Global Studies. This work will be done with careful consideration of the prototype assessment questions released, the SS Framework and the C3 Inquiries.
