March 10 - March 12

The Wisconsin International Resource Consortium (WIRC), of which LACIS is a member, will be giving to presentations during the conference geared towards K-12 educators.

Saturday, March 11th | 2:25-3:15 p.m.

“Dehumanizing and Re-humanizing Refugees”

Inquiry-Based learning gives students agency over their learning and develops student-generated questioning skills. When educators apply active-learning techniques in social studies, students aren’t just students, they’re historians and researchers. In this session, participants will learn how to unleash their social studies teaching potential by creating an inquiry-based teaching and learning classroom using primary sources and social stuides simulations as a form of student exploration. This highly interactive and engaging session will be used to promote student-generated questioning, utilize high DOK level thought processes, engage with student-centered techniques to build civic knowledge, and apply learning from the past to today’s democratic society.

Sunday, March 12th | 11-11:50 a.m.
