Powerful Social Studies Instructional Practices
Build literacy and inquiry skills and help students understand and engage with their world

Teachers who follow SREB’s six Powerful Social Studies Instructional Practices create compelling thematic questions and choose a broad range of disciplinary and interdisciplinary sources — such as print, oral or digital texts, letters, cartoons, photographs, audio and video recordings, art, artifacts, maps and more— that spark students’ curiosity and prompt them to complete inquiry-focused tasks.
