Planning with the H-SS Framework: Inquiry, Literacy, and Civic Engagement

UCBHSSP will present a three day planning institute for K-12 teachers who are interested in working individually and in collaborative groups to rethink their approach to history/social studies instruction as informed by California's History-Social Science Framework that encourages four major shifts to planning and instruction: content, inquiry, literacy, and civic engagement. Workshops and presentations will be informed by our work supporting Framework implementation with teachers over the past several years. This institute is hosted in partnership with, and will be held at, the San Mateo County Office of Education.


San Mateo County Office of Education, June 11-13, 9am-4pm



Institute Goals:

  • Discuss the shifts in planning and instruction recommended by the H-SS Framework.
  • Draft cascading year-long, unit, and lesson focus questions to drive student inquiry.
  • Develop a lesson incorporating a discrete literacy strategy.
  • Explore approaches to unit and lesson designs that promote student civic engagement.

All participants will receive a copy of Access for All Learners, an instructional handbook that includes learning strategies to encourage planning for literacy and disciplinary thinking.
