  • Instruct the participants to text their answer to the number listed on the screen. Toggle to the internet so they can see the responses being shown as they are entered.
    Remind them they do not have to participate if they are charged for texting, but to maybe find someone who is not and that person can share their phone.
  • Welcome the participants and introduce yourself. Be sure to share your teaching experiences.
  • Bullet 1: Revised standards allowed for more depth instead of breadth. Put the focus on creating historical thinkers not just students who could memorize facts. Internet and increased access to information presents a shift in regurgitating facts versus evaluating information.
    Bullet 2: Content driven standards but reading, writing, research, technology, primary sources, and critical analysis are embedded in the content.
    Bullet 3: 5th largest school district servicing over 300,000 students. Must provide PD to K-12. Can’t always meet face to face or participate in job-embedded PD. Forces creativity.
  • A Blog allows for information, research, and ideas to be shared in an anywhere, anytime format. We have used a blog for trainings, to share research articles, and to provide teachers an opportunity to collaborate with one another across the school district and the state.
    Click on hyperlink to go to my blog.
  • Our district/state has purchased a license for Centra. This is an online classroom where participants can be in the class from their home or school. All they need is a computer, internet access, and headphones with a microphone.
    The forum can be interactive, providing participants with the opportunity to speak to the group, view slides, handouts, use mark up tools, collaborate in whole or small groups, and view web links.
    We have used Centra for a variety of PD activities with both teachers and students. When we revised the district syllabi, we conducted informational meetings online; we have used it for Department Chair meetings, and we are currently using it for state-wide collaboration for the Common Core.
    One of our greatest successes was using Centra to broadcast Holocaust survivor and author, Eva Kor as she addressed high school students in Reno, the rest of the state was able to show her presentation, and students could Tweet in questions.
  • Click on the link above to show a brief snipit of the Eva Kor presentation.
  • Free document sharing that includes PPTs, word docs, excel spreadsheets.
    We have used it for collaboration when geographically dispersed: syllabus revisions, mock election, holocaust education, this presentation.
  • This is an example of a Google Form. We use them to gather information or to register participants for trainings. You can easily create the form with options for text boxes, pull down menus, ranking items, and multiple choice questions.
    There are also a variety of backgrounds and themes.
    Go to next slide…
  • One of the greatest features about Google Forms, is once the participants fill out the form and click submit, the information populates a spreadsheet. This information is also time stamped which is a great tool if you are limiting participants numbers.
    You can then download the spreadsheet and manipulate the information as needed.
    We are using Google forms as registration for our Holocaust Education conferences allowing us to move away from paper registration. In addition, I use it when offering specialized PD for a particular grade or subject level.
  • Slide share is another example a space where you can share your work with others. We first became familiar with slideshare at the NHD coordinators conference. We are using this format to link our presentation today for all of you.
    This format saves paper and provides all of you with the PPT and handouts from today. Please take one of our business cards at the end of the presentation today and the sticker on the back will provide you with the URL for Slideshare.
  • Twitter is also another way for you to communicate quick updates, reminders, and links to resources to your teachers.
    Email is becoming outdates and many teachers and students now access information using their phones. Teachers can use Twitter to send out reminders to their students about upcoming assignments, quizzes, or tests, and teachers can also use Twitter as resource.
    For example, I follow several school districts (NYC, Houston) to monitor how often and the types of communication they are tweeting. I also follow NCSS, NHD, several news organizations, and Free Technology 4 Teachers/Richard Byrne for additional updates.
    We will be starting a CCSD Social Studies Twitter page second semester to communicate important updates to our K-12 social studies teachers in the district.
  • Our state has also used technology and collaboration to bring together teachers and students from around the state to support social studies events.
    Law Day Live was our states’ contribution to involving all students in a live discussion on Technology and the Courts. Using video conferencing, we broadcast live from 4 courtrooms around the state and teachers could view the event using a live video feed through the State Supreme Court website. The topics covered were cyberbullying, and sexting, and the ramifications that has on the judicial system in Nevada. Students could also tweet in questions over the course of the two hours.
    Show link to Law Day Live
    Secondly, we used Skype to bring together the students from Northern and Southern Nevada who were going to the NHD National competition. We wanted to provide them with an opportunity to meet before we got to Washington DC. We also wanted them to collaborate a vote on a Nevada theme.
  • This data was collected in four states that incorporate NHD into their social studies curriculum.
    By conducting training and infusing NHD into the core social studies subjects, students are more college-ready can hone their skills as historical thinkers.
    We have embedded NHD into our district curriculum as a supported and suggested curriculum.
  • Both programs have been embedded into the middle and high school social studies curriculum.
    Benefits: competitive programs for both, students develop deeper understanding of civic education and participate in hands-on experiences.
  • Nevada is a partner in the Partnership for 21st Century Skills. The handout provides a guideline for what should be included in curriculum and instruction to create college-ready students.
    This aligns closely with the social studies skills embedded in our state standards and for CCSD, within the social studies syllabi.
    Go to next slide.
  • The Social Studies state standards revisions provided us with a unique opportunity to really look at our syllabi and examine the our content and what we were expecting from our students. In previous syllabi, the skills was addressed in the front of the syllabus and then virtually ignored throughout the rest of the syllabus.
    After we reviewed the skills, we selected the 11 we viewed as critical in quality social studies instruction (see handout).
    As with anything new, we have had to conduct extensive PD with our department chairs and teachers about what this looks like in the syllabus and what it means for instruction (see second handout).
    To support the emphasis on social studies content literacy, we created a Social Studies Appendix that provides over 50 research based content literacy strategies that will support social studies instruction (see third handout)
    Lets take a look at one of the strategies, Multiple Sources, Multiple Perspectives (last handout)
    All of the social studies PD is now centered around one or two of the Big 11 skills and supported by the strategies identified in the Social Studies Appendix.
  • In Nevada, social studies is not directly tested. However, we are indirectly tested through the CRT’s and our high school proficiency exam reading and writing scores.
    In addition, our state has joined the Common Core standards which will include social studies standards embedded with the ELA standards. These standards are content literacy based and are closely aligned with the Big 11 skills we identified in our district syllabi. It is our hope that this will increase the status or importance of social studies.
    It is also important to collaborate with ELA as non-fiction text is becoming a large component of the ELA instruction. We are currently designing PD that brings together ELA and social studies educators to assist them in aligning their curriculum to support one another.
    Lastly, it is always important to create college ready students. Problem solving, critical thinking, and historical analysis are skills that transcend beyond the social studies classroom and bleed over into daily life. Designing PD that infuses these strategies will improve student achievement and success.
  • Instruct the participants to text their answer to the number listed on the screen. Toggle to the internet so they can see the responses being shown as they are entered.
    Remind them they do not have to participate if they are charged for texting, but to maybe find someone who is not and that person can share their phone.
