Social Studies (6-12)
Driving Inquiry Through Film in Social Studies With Retro Report

This Social Studies professional learning opportunity will provide support with implementing the Social Studies TEKS, research-based instructional strategies focused on inquiry, historical thinking, future-ready learning, and access to quality resources targeted to provide support for all secondary courses (grades 6-12).

Important Session Information:

How do you engage students to connect past and present? How do you teach students to dissect essential questions and practice meaningful reflection and dialogue? Start with stories. Stories, particularly ones told from diverse viewpoints and hidden histories, attract students’ attention better than any other resource. Turn that attention into meaningful learning with strategies for sharpening inquiry skills and promoting student reflection and discussion. Through interviews, archival video, and photos, Retro Report filmmakers craft captivating stories that explore the hidden histories of yesterday and connect them to our world today. Utilizing Retro Report’s library of 250+ short-form documentaries, this session will highlight essential strategies and resources for high school social studies courses
