With the introduction of the Common Core Standards for Literacy, middle and high school history teachers must simultaneously convey content and build literacy while remaining true to their discipline. Fortunately, the historical investigations model offers an ideal vehicle for achieving these goals and also ignites in students a genuine interest in history! Learn how to craft your own historical investigations by writing effective focus questions, identifying and locating appropriate primary sources, scaffolding instruction, and facilitating independent student construction of well-supported arguments.  For more information and to register please contact Jennifer Frieman at jfrieman@mdhs.org.
