Fostering Shared Principles

Focus: This workshop addresses the shared principles that build readiness for high school and beyond: close observation and analysis, higher-order questioning, academic conversation, and evidence-based writing. Through engagement with model lessons from the Pre-AP World History and Geography course, participants will explore how these interconnected shared principles, in partnership with the social studies areas of focus, help all students work with primary and secondary sources in the way that historians do. Participants will:

  • Explore readiness through Pre-AP shared principles and social studies areas of focus.
  • Analyze and participate in model lessons from Pre-AP World History and Geography.
  • Collaborate and design classroom activities that build readiness and meet the needs of all learners.
