Developing Elementary Social Studies Concepts (K-5) through Picture Books
Blended Session

Quality children’s literature, specifically picture books, can be extremely helpful to teach social studies concepts to elementary school students by sharing important messages through simplistic, imagery filled text. Learning names and dates is not enough. We must be prepared to help children ask questions, and discover their answers through creative thinking, reasoning, judging, and understanding. This session will focus on selection of texts, read-aloud methods, and questioning techniques to facilitate rich conversation and reflection. Students will be able to independently use their learning to make informed decisions about current issues utilizing knowledge of historical patterns.

Important Session Information:
