Do you need new ways to engage students in discussion in your classroom? Are you tired of the same strategies? Check out my online professional development course created specifically for Social Studies teachers!

This workshop will explore the many different ways you can engage students through discussion in social studies. We will examine:

•the four steps for creating an effective discussion,

strategies for whole class discussion,

strategies for small group discussion, and

silent discussion strategies.

✨This course will be broken up into 3 different parts – the first of which is a 30 minute video on Discussion Strategies in Social Studies. Be sure to print the Discussion Strategies Doodle Notes and Lesson Planning Template to accompany the video.

✨After you have finished watching this video, you will move on to the second part, which is looking at more strategies for classroom discussion. I have created an Discussion Strategies Manual full of ideas for you to look at. This manual showcases 16 different strategies and includes templates to print!

✨The 3rd part is creation. You will receive a lesson plan template to design your own classroom discussion based on the 4 step process.

❤️I will issue a certificate for 2 hours of CPE - please follow the directions on the "Read Me First" handout.
