AIU Social Studies Symposium & Showcase 2017

The Social Studies Network of the Allegheny Intermediate Unit is pleased to be hosting the first-ever Social Studies Symposium and Showcase on Thursday, October 19, 2017 from 9:00am – 1:00pm.

The theme of the event is Inquiry at the Heart of Social Studies. This symposium is being held in response to the interests of schools and districts who wish to renew and rewrite their Social Studies curricula so as to embrace the needs of a contemporary interactive pedagogy while confronting the challenges of modern society.

Curriculum directors, school leaders, Social Studies department heads, K-12 Social Studies teachers, and anyone interested in or responsible for K-12 social studies curriculum and instruction are invited to attend. The morning will feature an array of power-talks on a variety of topics designed to elevate and stimulate conversations around the role of inquiry and dynamic learning in Social Studies. In addition, a wide variety of vendors, institutions, and organizations dedicated to the promotion of K-12 Social Studies education will be available at our showcase. You won’t want to miss the opportunity to interact with these and other participants for exciting discussions regarding the future of Social Studies!

The Social Studies Symposium & Showcase is a FREE event!
