Social Studies, Portraiture, & Inquiry Workshop
November 20, 2013
On November 19, Center for Inspired Teaching and National Portrait Gallery staff held a training for teachers interested in new ways to integrate inquiry into their classrooms. Inspired Teaching’s Cosby Hunt and Briana Zavadil White from the National Portrait Gallery, led the workshop, entitled Social Studies, Portraiture, and Inquiry in Your Classroom.
Designed for teachers interested in finding new ways to integrate art and inquiry-based learning into their lessons, the workshop used the Portrait Gallery’s collection to explore four stages of an inquiry lesson:
- developing questions and planning inquiries,
- applying disciplinary concepts and tools,
- evaluating sources and using evidence, and
- developing conclusions and taking informed action.
