This differentiated History/Social Science Community of Practice is designed for new and experienced history, social science, and humanities educators (grades 6–12) to apply engaging, inquiry-based strategies that will increase students’ ability to think, read, and write like a historian. Beginning this summer, educators will engage in both synchronous and asynchronous learning. Participants will experience and design student learning around rigorous Writing, Inquiry, Collaboration, Organization, and Reading (WICOR) methodologies to scaffold learning to promote critical thinking and analysis of source material. To support academic rigor, a variety of tools will be utilized to demonstrate that WICOR can be implemented in both face-to-face and digital environments. Throughout the school year, history/social science educators will engage with colleagues to deepen and broaden learning through activities, discussions, and On-Demand Learning opportunities.
