Conference Themes 2022
Developing Systems Leadership Skills
Sessions focus on the development and fine-tuning of systems-level organizational structures from the grade level, school, and/or district perspectives. Topics can include applying organizational tools, frameworks and resources in social studies leadership such as project management, Microsoft/Google Enterprise licenses, TREGO Education, and SWOT (Strengths/Weaknesses/Opportunities/Threats) protocols.
Integrating Social Studies with STEM
Sessions focus on how social studies content and skills can or have been organically integrated with STEM content and skills for a rich, standards-based, student learning experience.
Increasing Disciplinary Literacy Capacity
Sessions focus on developing, implementing, and sustaining systemic instruction that builds student agency in self-curating information and opinions from multiple types of media and text in response to past and contemporary issues by critically examining primary and secondary sources. Supervisors facilitate instructors in embracing civic literacy and developing methods for engaging students in building skills to become informed and engaged citizens.
Supporting Equitable and Inclusive Narratives
Sessions focus on developing, implementing, and sustaining systemic instruction that supports administrators and teachers in using resources and instructional strategies that align to state standards and board of education policy requiring equitable and inclusive narratives.
Bridging K-16 with Research Based Instructional Practices
Sessions focus on developing, implementing and sustaining instruction based on partnerships with or influence by university research in social studies instruction and learning.
