  • Hello everyone! Links to things I mentioned are here:

    Peter Sexias - the Big Six historical concepts are: Historical significance, evidence, continuity and change, cause and consequence, historical perspectives…

  • I am reminded that inquiry is an important way to engage students and create opportunities for awe, curiosity, and the desire to know things. I never thought about it as a way to develop the skill of skepticism…

  • I truly enjoyed this session!  What sources would you all as educators point a new teacher, such as myself, towards for planning great inquiries for inquiry-based social studies lessons?

  •  great to hear and I really like the Inquiry Design Model. As I said in the discussion, I think it works incredibly well when you use a particular form of historical thinking as the framework. I also can't take credit for the stems - they are the work of one of my colleagues at the Schools History Project, Alex Ford. He uses them when training teachers at the start of their career and he was kind enough to give me permission to share them. Really pleased that you will be using them!

  • I really enjoyed this session on Designing Inquiry.  This discussion really made me think about skills and how this leads directly to Inquiry, how the two go hand in hand.  This could be a very powerful tool to help students use skills in a real life way.  Thank you for this session. #OERscavengerhunt 

  •  Great to hear that and look forward to hearing/seeing the results of your work going forward!
