OTF Summer Institute

July 25-27, Niagara-on-the-Lake

Just Blend It! Inquiry and Blended Learning in the History and Social Science Classroom (Grades 7-12)

In this Summer Institute, participants will have time to deepen their understanding of disciplinary thinking concepts through the inquiry lens. Subjects include those in History, Economics, Law, Politics/Civics, and the Social Sciences. Through a series of practical, hands-on, collaborative activities, we will explore blended learning pedagogy and technology options to use in your classes. These strategies will be geared to support inquiry and critical thinking, and to increase your strategies to assess for/as learning. By the end of this Summer Institute, participants will have constructed a task, lesson or assessment for a context of their choosing, that will be immediately applicable in their work. Teachers of grades 7-12 are invited to register. Bring your own laptop or other connected devices.
