Course # AA3930

Deconstructing the IL Social Science Standards and Course Mandates for Curriculum Design

This course provides a protocol for districts to deconstruct the revised social science standards to design relevant and rigorous curricula aligned with standards and required course mandates. Explicit connections will be made between the new standards, Common Core State Standards in ELA Literacy, Social Emotional Learning Standards, and the Danielson Framework for Effective Teaching. Participants will examine the latest research in the civic learning community from the Educating for American Democracy Roadmap and Pedagogy Companion to curate high-quality resources for curriculum design as defined by the Inclusive American History Report issued in 2022 by ISBE. Time will be devoted to how administrators can support teachers in creating a culture of support before challenging content, promoting excellence for all, inquiry as to the primary mode of learning, constitutional democracy as content and practice, and performance assessments that enhance the learning process.
