The Inquiry method teaches students how to ask and investigate important social studies questions. Those skills are necessary for students to develop the critical thinking skills that are the foundation for engaged citizenship.
This course will focus on the first two dimensions of the C3 framework: Asking Questions and Applying Disciplinary Concepts. We will provide ample opportunity for participants to try activities that encourage students in thinking routines that support historical questioning and analysis.
Primary sources will be drawn from the women’s suffrage movement. Embedded in the day-long session will be opportunities for participants to develop their own inquiry or part of an inquiry on a topic of their choice that connects to their curriculum. The first after-school session will be a work-in-progress session. The second session will feature completed projects.
