Releasing Responsibility in an AP History Class
This session will focus on activities that can be done in AP courses that release responsibility to the students while still keeping the focus on developing AP skills. I will go through some of the activities I have done with my AP classes sharing rubrics and project descriptions. I'd like for at least part of the session to be focused on brainstorming and sharing ideas in addition to the activities that I present.

Teaching High School Social Studies in 90 Days
We all struggle with "covering" the required content in the allotted time frame. During this session we will look at strategies and resources to help alleviate this issue for social studies teachers. We will also discuss various updates to high school social studies in UCPS.

Using Simulations in the Civics Classroom
The goal of the session would be to present teachers with information about the games in ICIVICS and other simulations, as well as the six-week projects I generally do on political parties, budgets and building a city. I would also cover the H&R Block Personal finance simulation. It would be blended as some things can be done individually, such as ICIVICS. Other items would be more lecture/discussion to show teachers the resources I use and that can be adapted to their classes.
