Social Studies Standards Professional Development

The following Year 2 Putting the Iowa Core Social Studies Standards Together sessions are being offered by Heartland AEA during the 2018-19 school year. 

This two-day workshop will review and build upon Year 1 of the social studies standards professional development. Learning will focus on putting the standards together into coherent inquiry-based unit plans. Participants will learn about good unit design, how to unpack and bundle standards and build more in-depth knowledge on the use of compelling and supporting questions while creating coherence throughout a unit to implement the standards. 

These workshops support the implementation of the Iowa Core Social Studies Standards, and supporting resources will be shared with participants. This is year two of a three-year state roll-out plan to help teachers, coaches and administrators develop robust, coherent social studies units that align with the Standards.
