The California History-Social Science Framework suggests a plan to help teachers organize their courses around questions and topics of disciplinary significance (ch.21).
The Framework asks to teachers to consider, “What topics of relative significance, enduring understandings-or 'big ideas'-can be learned.” This session will demonstrate
how history-social science teachers can translate these big, significant ideas into yearlong Essential Questions using cascading questions, informed by the backwards mapping model developed by Wiggins and McTighe in their seminal work Understanding by Design. In this presentation participants will learn how to effectively
and intentionally organize their content in order to create inquiry-driven courses.
