2020-2021 Capital Region CLIC Virtual Series
We are partnering with the Sacramento and Placer County Offices of Education to take our CLIC Capital Region Community of Practice virtual for the 2020-2021 school year. We are excited to offer a series of sessions that aim to:
- Improve teacher capacity to implement California's History-Social Science Framework
- Explore disciplinary best practices in distance and hybrid learning
- Continue to develop our regional professional network
April 14th: Using Picture Books to Spark Historical Inquiry
The CLIC Project Capital Region is excited to welcome Kate Bowen, a teacher leader with The History Project at UC Davis and Dr. Katherine Cortes, Associate Director of The History Project at UC Davis as they share innovative
ways to spark historical inquiry through the use of picture books.
The CA HSS Framework highlights the importance of presenting multiple perspectives in the classroom. Picture books offer a unique opportunity to achieve this in the PK 5 setting. This interactive session will explore the use of picture books paired with primary sources for engaging inquiry. While examples will be specific to the PK 5 classroom, the strategies presented are useful for any age student.
