In this workshop participants will be introduced to the Inquiry Design Model (IDM), which is a distinctive approach to creating curriculum and instructional material that honor teachers’ knowledge and expertise, avoids overprescription, and focuses on the main elements of the instructional design process as envisioned in the Inquiry Arc of the College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Framework for Social Studies State Standards (2013). Developed in response to the C3 Framework--the IDM is a planning tool that supports teachers in putting the type of inquiry called for in the C3 into action. Unique to the IDM is the blueprint, a one-page representation of the questions, tasks, and sources that define a curricular inquiry. Participants will learn how to use the IDM to create K-12 social studies curriculum for the purpose of cultivating students who are knowledgeable, thinking, and active citizens.
