Shifting Instruction to the Core, History-Social Studies Session II: Writing to Sources

History-Social Studies teachers and their administrators gathered Thursday for the second session of Shifting Instruction to the Core. Participants continued their focus on the  Instructional Shifts and Instructional Practice Guides from their previous session, this time with an emphasis on writing to sources. The session included a reflection on teacher's classroom use of Keep It or Junk It, a review of the Instructional Practice Guides and Argumentative Writing, a careful annotation of "The Writing Revolution", engagement in a lesson model for ranking evidence, and time to apply the lesson to their future lessons. Materials for the session are linked below.
