Penn GSE Virtual Institutes bring Penn's faculty and resources to teachers, educators and leaders across the globe. In these innovative professional learning modules, participants engage in real-time, online group sessions as well as reflect and learn at their own pace in asynchronous sessions. Institutes typically span three consecutive half days, allowing participants to accelerate their learning while continuing to fulfill their professional obligations.
The demands of the 21st Century require students who can investigate intentionally, think critically, and argue persuasively. The Teaching Document-Based History Institute helps teachers support students to engage in authentic history inquiry.
Developed for history teachers for grades 6-12, this Institute focuses on three key instructional practices: establishing background knowledge, supporting historical reading, and facilitating document-based discussion.
Participants will be equipped with practical strategies and techniques for implementing Stanford History Education Group's Reading Like a Historian curriculum, which engages students with authentic sources and compelling questions. Educators will leave this Institute with a plan for how to implement this curriculum in the classroom.
