The revised social studies standards are set to go into effect this fall, and there are some significant changes to the benchmarks for grades K-6. This workshop, sponsored by the Center for Social Studies Education, will address the revised standards for elementary grades and provide support for teachers who will be incorporating the new material in fall 2013.
The day will include a keynote session on literacy in the social studies with Kari Ross from the Minnesota Department of Education, sessions on unpacking the standards for the specific grade levels, and a menu of afternoon sessions focusing on some of the particular changes to the benchmarks. The workshop fee includes parking, lunch and museum admission.
