Common Core & the New Social Studies Curriculum

Facilitator: J’aime PfeifferSchool Library System Director for WSWHE BOCES.

A link to the Google Docs folder with everything discussed at the workshop can be found here: This includes the PowerPoint which you are free to use, and modify, as needed.   Also included are 2 docs that were not discussed – the “Depth of Knowledge,” a  tool to show teachers where the vocabulary they use for instruction is lined up with inquiry, i.e. “Define = Recall; Critique = Strategic Thinking,"  and “Teaching with Informational Text,” which is a good way to sit down with teachers and complete the form together when looking at text to use in a lesson.  

Also, the following is a link to J'aime Pfieffer's LibGuide:
